    Student Class Options

    i'm developing a student database for a college to hold student, course and class information.

    Students have a choice of 4 different classes per block, and there are 3 blocks a year, so they will get 3 choices of 4 classes per year.

    I need a form that will hold this information that i can view all the classes being taken that block, and to be able to store information of the classes taken in a previous block.

    In my ClassAssignment table, I have these fields


    To do what im planning would i be better to have {Period1,Period2,Period3,Period4}?

    I really can't figure out how to store this information so any advice you guys can give me would be great!

    A few questions, perhaps, the answers might come in helpful to others to help :

    One STUDENT can take multiple CLASSES per BLOCK.
    What is CLASS? Can you elaborate ?
    Can a STUDENT repeat or enrol for the same CLASS in another BLOCK ?

    There are 3 BLOCKS per YEAR.
    Does this mean,
    Jan 1, 2012 to Apr 30,2012 is the 1st block,
    May 1, 2012 to Aug 31,2012 is the 2nd block,
    Sep 1, 2012 to Dec 31,2012 is the 3rd block

    Is there a possibility of the BLOCK range definition changing in the long run?

    What is COURSE and what is it's relationship with STUDENT or COURSE if any?

    Along with the answers to above, if possible, attach your present table relationships.
