What about some example data? I presume you could use some

apply, tapply, aggregate or similar function but without knowing what 
you **really** want to do and how your previous attempts failed it is 
hard to give any definite answer.

student=sample(letters[1:4],100, rep=T), result=runif(100))
   year student         x
1     1       a 0.4026579
2     2       a 0.4690311
15    3       d 0.5316301
16    4       d 0.4401949
