A normal calculator should have a square root button. However that is not what your first question seemed to be asking, and to take a 5th root (or to calculate something to an unusual power) then you must have a scientific calculator, and of course you can use it in the exam.

CALCULATION USING NORMAL CALCULATOR :
Step 1 : Underroot 12 times
Step 2 : subtract 1
Step 3 multiply with number in the power ( in above case 1/5)(in case of 3 times root 1/3) ( or in case of 2/3 multiply by 2/3)
Step 4 : add 1
Step 5 : press x= (multiply sign and equal to) 12 times
The result would be the answer
Try with number 32 as it has result 2 ( follow the above steps)( in india we do like this)

I have passed AFM in the examination attempt of June 2019 and attained 65 marks. The credit goes to you for this success. The method of your teaching would make difficult concepts of AFM much more easier to me to understand and learn.

Thank you once again, many prays and best wishes for you.

previous material on open tuition has really helped in passing my exams and am looking forward to use AFM materials for my forthcoming exam in December

Yes you can 🙂
