    asp.net has tutorials with the first two as standard drag and drop features of their framework.

    This. But if your teachers require that you use Microsoft Access (are they serious ? oh boy...) this might not be of any help.

    At schools and colleges, they still give emphasis to Microsoft technologies. No wonder my most graduated friends are not able to work with PHP.

    Check out entity framework and asp.net mvc, you get the user registration system out of the box.



    Most graduates I know won't work with PHP. There is a good reason well educated people go for languages other than PHP :p

    Don't bother with W3Schools if you're learning for the first time.

    Code:
    http://w3fools.com/

    Like mentioned above I would look into PHP and MySQL. It's not hard, you just have to use some will power to search Google for things like "how to make a signup page in php" and all sorts of other alternative keywords and with some common sense you will be able to compile some code together and at the same time learn something useful. This will take you a few hours of sitting down and trying to figure out but it's well worth it at the end when you realize how easy it really is once you grasp the idea of how PHP and MySQL works. You can always outsource this but you won't learn as much as you will if you do it yourself. Also databases aren't as difficult to create as they may seem to be.

    PS. At least not the basic ones. ;)

    If he has to use MS Access as the database then it is highly likely they will want him to use ASP as PHP does not support connecting to MS Access that easily unless using ODBC i.e.

    Thats absolutely true. WELL educated people will go for languages other than PHP. Gosh if I had not been a Civil Engineer, I would really look into ruby on rails too(though I can write some bits in JAVA and C#).

    PS. And like some people have said above make sure that you fit the requirements. If using Microsoft Access is a requirement then you may need to look at ASP instead.

    After much effort,I have convinced college staff and they have allowed me to use PHP and MySQL :D

    Now,I went through some tutorials and have understood connecting to database and inserting data.

    Using that info,I have created a sign up page.

    Now,I want to create a login page,login page for administrator and online exam page.

    No, NO! I can't tolerate W3Schools, they are not associated with the Web Consortium, are a privately owned company and their certification on their website is worth nothing.
