As the Student Centre is closed for in-person enquiries, we are unable to approve calculators and linguistic dictionaries in-person before your exam. Make sure your calculator or dictionary meets the outlined requirements. We're still looking at what our approval process will be for checking calculators and dictionaries for your exams, and will provide further advice on this page as soon as we have more information on how this will work.
