## Calculators

Please note the following taken from the CIT code of conduct for CIT examination candidates:

“*Where a pocket calculator is used it must be silent, self-powered and non-programmable. *

*It may not be passed from one candidate to another. Instructions for its use may not be *

*brought into the Examination Hall. *

*The term ‘programmable’ includes any calculator that is capable of storing a sequence of *

*keystrokes that can be retrieved after the calculator is turned off or powers itself off. Note that the *

*capacity to recall, edit and replay previously executed calculations does not render a calculator *

*programmable, provided that this replay memory is automatically cleared when the calculator is *

*powered off. Also, the facility to store numbers in one or more memory locations does not render *

*a calculator programmable. *

*Calculators with any of the following mathematical features are prohibited: *

*• Graph plotting *

*• Equation solving *

*• Symbolic algebraic manipulation *

**• Numerical integration**

*• Numerical differentiation *

*• Matrix calculations *

*Calculators with any of the following features are prohibited *

*• Data Banks *

*• Dictionaries *

*• Language translators *

*• Text retrieval *

*• Capability of remote communication*“
