Exam calculator policy

All students in the International Baccalaureate® (IB) Diploma Programme (DP) will need a calculator for one or more subjects. 

However, not all programs or applications are suitable for use in examinations. Further information on recommended, approved and prohibited calculators may be found in the Online Curriculum Centre (OCC).

Schools that are authorized to implement the IB’s programmes, or are candidates to do so, can access the OCC. 

Each DP subject group has its own section of the OCC. For information on calculator use in different subjects, please visit either the OCC’s calculator section or the relevant subject section.
