Help Three questions about the exam center day

Hi to those who've already experienced the exam, I have a few questions:

1) Are we given paper,pen/pencil to scribble our notes down, etc.

2) Are we given a calculator for calculations?

3) Does the software have the ability to highlight keywords of the question?

Thank you
