Using TI-30XA on the PSAT: Permitted?

Okay, so none of my friends are sure about this - is the TI-30XA calculator one that’s okay to use during the PSAT? I need to confirm this because it’s the only one I have, and I’m not really looking to buy another.

Absolutely! The TI-30XA is indeed allowed on the PSAT/NMSQT. The College Board, which administers the PSAT, has a list of approved calculators, and your model falls well within the guidelines. It's a scientific calculator, which is perfectly suitable for the test. Just remember to ensure it's working properly and that you have fresh batteries installed before test day to avoid any technical issues during the exam. You should also familiarize yourself with its functions if you haven't already, as being comfortable with your calculator can save you precious time. Don't hesitate to reach out if you have any more questions or need further assistance!
