Just got an email saying this about calculators:

A non-programmable calculator will be allowed for use in Section III only. Please note that your calculator will not be permitted if it has any of the following

o A button called PRGM or prog (or similar);

o A graphics function;

o Keys or buttons with alphabetic letters associated with them (allowing letters and words to be entered).

My calculator is a Casio fx-100au. Now it obviously does not have the first two things that are not permitted but the last point talks about letters. It has the letters A, B, C, D, E, F, X, Y, M. I'm not even sure what they are used for. Are they going to care about this? I have a couple of other scientific calculators at home but they all have some sort of letterings on them.
