This isn't really the place to get other people to do your homework.  You should try to do this yourself, then ask questions related to to code,

here are some "pointers" for you:
1) staticlly : use an array of a pre-determined size.
2) dynamiclly: use some sort of linked-list.
both methods should use a structue to hold the students info.
as for the files:
* use a counter to see how many students are in your system and don't delete if its <= 10.
* you can use the files for both versions, it's onlt raw data which you need to read at the beginning of your program.

and don't forget, EE is a place you can get help, not get your homework done for you.

Good luck,
Arnon David.
