Calculators Does the Casio FX-911ES PLUS fit this description?

  1. May 8, 2012 #1
    Hi everyone,

    I'm trying to work out if my calculator (Casio FX-911ES PLUS) is allowed in my uni exams but I'm a noob to calculators (I'm on a foundation course!)

    Here's the description of allowed calculators:

    "students are allowed to use noiseless, non-mains, single-line display, non-programmable calculators without ascii memories in examinations. This definition means that the use of graphical calculators is prohibited."

    At least could anyone tell me how I find out if my calculator can do any of those things? I've looked through the manual but there's no mention in the way they've worded it.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    Not a hundred percent sure here, but looking more closely at the Casio FX-911ES Plus, it clearly shows more than 1 line in the display and it does look programmable.. Those two things a lone disqualify this calculator to be used.
