Are you kidding?

There’s a website you can check out that has all the information you need.


But seriously. Minimum 25 pencils. 5 erasers. 3 calculators. 1 change of underwear. 2 pairs socks. They encourage snacking during the exam, so feel free to bring plenty of snacks. OH- and this is important, don’t forget to bring a big plastic bag to carry all of your stuff into the test room.

And remember, you’re allowed to bring 1 formula sheet with writings on one side only but it must be written in red ink ONLY so that it’s visible to proctors to make sure you’re not cheating :slight_smile:

Here is the official calculator policy:

You also must bring your passport with the name matching your exam ticket.

You can bring a lunch/snack in a backpack. It will need to be stored in a locker at the test center. They will give you a locker key. You can’t bring any food or drink past the lobby with the lockers.
