Approved calculators on the exams

​The examiner decides which aids may be used on the exam, which are stated in the course-PM and the exam thesis. For the academic year 2018/2019 Chalmers has bought calculators to be used at the exam if the examiner has indicated "Chalmers-approved calculator".

This means that you can borrow a calculator to use during the exam. You may not bring your own calculator of the same model. The calculators will be handed out by the invigilator at the examination.

The models are:
  • Casio FX-82
  • Sharp EL-W531
  • Texas TI-30
If you want to check out the models, there are some calculators in the information desk at the main library on campus Johanneberg and in the information desk at Kuggen on campus Lindholmen.

In the Regulations for planning and conducting first cycle courses and examinations you can read about the examination rules at Chalmers. If the teacher indicates that you can bring your own calculator to the exam, please note that it's your own responsibility to make sure that you bring a calculator with empty memory. This will also be checked with sample checks.

It's important that you are aware of the regulations that apply to your studies and what duties and rights you have. If you are not sure what is applicable, contact your student guidance counselor.
