    I dont want to hard code it. I know that you can have 2 arrays, one of string type to store names and the other of int type for the marks and then you can display them using the index of the element of any particular array.

    However I want the array to ne dynamic and it should be filled by the user and not hard coded. What is the best way to go about it. I want to use arrays and not array lists.

    To assign a value to an element in an array you code something like this:
    anArray[ix] = theValue; // set the element at ix to theValue

    Then vary the value of ix to move from one element to the next.

    You could use ArrayList?

    I think you can make object array.
    Each object saved in the array has two values which are name and mark.
    Can you make one more class?
