Faculty Calculator Guidelines

Students are not permitted to use graphic calculators or scientific calculators with retrievable text when permitted to use calculators in a closed book final examination of a Pharmacy or Pharmaceutical Science unit. From 2020, new students may only use the following two approved models of scientific calculator:

  • Casio FX82AU (any version)
  • Texas Instruments 30XB

Approved at Faculty Education Committee Meeting 5/2019.

(Please note that continuing students who commenced prior to 2020 with a calculator model different from those listed above will still be able to use that calculator in final examinations provided that it has an existing faculty approval sticker. However, no further faculty approval stickers will be issued.)
