Private Sub Command1_Click()
Dim a(9) As Integer
Dim b(9) As Integer
Dim ival As Integer
Dim avgTopSix
a(0) = 55
a(1) = 67
a(2) = 29
a(3) = 33
a(4) = 54
a(5) = 62
a(6) = 22
a(7) = 33
a(8) = 43
a(9) = 25

For j = 0 To 9
    tmpInt = 0
    For i = 0 To 9
        If a(i) >= a(ival) Then
            ival = i
        End If
       
    Next i
    b(j) = a(ival)
    a(ival) = 0
Next j
For j = 0 To 9
    If j < 6 Then
        avgTopSix = avgTopSix + b(j)
    End If
    'MsgBox b(j)
Next j
MsgBox "The average of the top 6 scores is : " & avgTopSix / 6

End Sub

This sounds like a homework assignment, so I'll only offer the logic, not the code:

1) Put the grades into an array
2) Sort the tests, highest grade to lowest
3) Pull off the first six array elements and get their sum
4) Display the sum divided by six
