A fully functional calculator is essential to success at GCE and whilst other scientific calculators are available and perfectly fit for purpose, we recommend that our students equip themselves with a Casio FX991-EX CLASSWIZ. 

Essential for GCE, the CLASSWIZ also boasts some features that give significant advantage to students studying for their GCE, such as automatic solving of linear, quadratic and simultaneous equations, quadratic inequalities and calculation of important statistics.
