How to Identify Non Programmable Calculators

The Higher Secondary students are supposed to follow certain things as strictly instructed by the Directorate of Higher Secondary Education. An Exam Manual has been published by the DHSE in connection with this. As per its directions, the students are not allowed to use programmable calculators. But the teachers as well as the students find it difficult to differentiate the programmable calculator from the non programmable one.

Programmable Vs Non Programmable Calculator


Here are certain things to be noted to find out the difference between the two.

A non programmable calculator is of light weight with small screen display and simple outlook. It would be devoid of function buttons.
A programmable calculator is a little heavier one with comparatively bigger screen display and graphic capabilities.
The A-Z alphabets buttons/key make the programmable calculator an easily identifiable one.
Storing texts, alpha numeric data, graphic functions, facility for internet connectivity and communications are possible only in the programmable calculator.
