    Ok - I am really stuck on this. I have managed to create a Hashmap
    that holds student names and will hold scores of coursework, and it
    will finally give them a grade.

    I now have to:

    * Asks the user to enter the marks for all the students for the given
    * It should check that the tma number provided as the argument is
    * but it can assume that the marks entered by the user are valid.

    I am getting no where - error messages all the time. Can anybody
    point me in the right direction.
    Firstly my two classes are Student and TutorGroup. When I create a
    new TutorGroup (using blueJ) - I can see attribute - students. click
    on students - it shows key (students name) - type -
    click on the student and I can see their respective details :
    attribute (name) with its value"Billy"(type string) and attribute
    (tma) with is value 0(int).

    How do I use this line:

    public void enterMarksForTMA(int tma)

    to complete the above.

    I have received no end of error messages. I have tried a keySet but
    have only managed to get it to display Name[0,0]X instead of just
    their name.

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Might be easier if you actually state the error message you are
