IGCSE Biology: Can my candidates take a calculator into the examination?

Students should take a calculator, ruler, pencil, protractor and set of compasses into all science exams. For Biology examinations a medium pencil is required – hard pencils leave faint lines that may fade so that they cannot be marked – soft pencils give thick lines that may not be clear enough for candidates to gain marks.

For more information, please refer to the Cambridge Handbook, which can be downloaded from the Support Materials section of CIE Direct or from the Exams Officer section of our public website.
