Calculators in ST examinations

Department of Statistics policy

The Department of Statistics follows the School’s policy on calculators. Only calculators in the Casio fx-83 and Casio fx-85 ranges may be used in LSE examinations.

These are available to buy from the LSE Students’ Union shop on campus. All new students to the Department of Statistics will be given the correct calculator in their welcome packs. It is against the examination regulations for students to store information in the memory of their calculators which they would use or which would otherwise give them an advantage in the exam room.

You are entirely responsible for ensuring that your calculator is in working order and for providing in advance for alternative means of calculating if it fails during the examination. You must state clearly on the examination script the make and model of calculator used.
