Not all "STEM" exams allow calculators. Calculus, Chemistry, Statistics, and Physics are allowed graphing calculators for a portion of the exam. Only simplified "four-function with square root" calculators are allowed for a portion of the Biology exam. No other exams allow calculators of any sort. Students are expected to discuss the intricacies of College Board's calculator policy with their teacher and research further on their own. This link is only one avenue towards that due-diligence.
