What all calculators are allowed in science optionals?

edited November 2014 in Tools & Technology
It is very important to familiarise ourselves with right calculator. Can any senior player inform whether Casio FX 991ES is allowed? We used it during our college exams but I am not sure if UPSC allows it or not. HPPSC allows only very basic calculators, the ones used should not even have check option. They would simply not allow even the calculators used in baniya shops.


  • I have the same confusion whether Casio FX 991ES is allowed or not?? somebody plz help!
  • Yes. FX 991ES is allowed. I used it the last time.
  • Any non-programmable calculator is allowed.
    If I'm not mistaken, Casio programmable calculators have a 'P' at the end
  • HPPSC doesnot allow FX991ES saying that only very basic calculators are allowed.

  • Has anybody tried Casio 991EX ?
    Apparently there are some additional functions related to matrix multiplication. Are they helpful particularly for Physics optional ?
  • same doubt her fx-991ES though i have checked it is non programmable but still any experienced person may clarify
  • Upsc page at the time of downloading admit card explicitly says non programmable calc is allowed.
