I think tht scientific calculator must be allowed or else its a huge blunder on part of the commission for clearly mentioning in the instruction with form tht scientific calculator is allowed fr BA exam and nw with certificate it isn't...the only way is to directly call the commission to clear confusion

If scientific calculators are not allowed then such questions will be hard to solve or probably they might not ask any such question which requires 'raised to the power' function as it is not available in simple calculators.

However, I ll advise to carry both type of calculators with you on paper day. If nothing is written in instructions regarding scientific calculator, you may surely use that otherwise use the simple calculator.

scientific calculators are allowed with only scientific functions other functions like storing text data are not allowed as well as digital diaries with scientific functions are also not allowed so use only simple or scientific calculator like casio model fx-82MS IS ALLOWED . its easily available in market for just Rs.250
