Calculators (GCSE and A Level)

So I need to get DS a new calculator.

He is (hopefully) about to sit GCSE so he needs one that satisfies GCSE requirements.

However, he might be going on to take A Level maths next year, so I'd ideally like to buy one calculator that will be fine for that as well.

Any recommendations?

This one is the generally recommended one for A-level.

Thanks noble - and I presume that is ok to use for GCSE as well (it doesn't have any functions it shouldn't have, for example)?

Yes, it’s allowed at GCSE too and has lots of handy functions like solving quadratics and simultaneous equations that he should look up! Lots of videos online.
