Question Graphing calculator necessary for Physics?

Starting NTU Physics in about a week's time. However, I am still mulling over whether a graphing calculator is necessary. Currently, still only have my 2x Casio scientific calculators from sec sch days, which I used throughout my poly days too. So far in my education, have never used a graphing calculator before.

Advice appreciated!

it's a good to have but not must have. You can check answers for integrals and graphs.

So other than those cases, there isn't really a need to use one? How about for exams? Are there any that really requires the use of one? (i.e. make-or-break situation whereby it is allowed and can be used to check integrals/graphs quicker)
