When students are permitted to use calculators in a closed book final examination of a unit, graphic calculators will not be permitted. Scientific calculators with no retrievable text or memory are acceptable.
For Faculty of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences units, a sticker system is used to identify permissible calculators.
Approved at Education Committee meeting 6/2009.
Getting your calculator approved
New students can have their scientific calculators approved at a special session during Orientation week. Please bring your calculator so that it can be checked and we can put a faculty sticker on it. If you forget to bring your calculator on this day, you can bring it along to Faculty Reception at a later date, as per returning students (see below).
Returning students can have their calculator checked and approved (and obtain an approval sticker) from:
Faculty Reception, Ground Floor, Sissons Building.
9.00 am - 12.00 pm or 2.00 pm - 5.00 pm during semester
You must bring your calculator with you when seeking approval, otherwise an approval sticker will not be issued.
Important reminder: A student who has not obtained an approval sticker for their calculator will not be permitted to bring any type of calculator into the exam room.
