As for the posted question: that depends on your requirements. A database would be a possibility but there might be other ways.

I have written several online exam systems used commercially.

With an application this complex you should NOT be thinking "developing in jsp" - you will get all tangled up in presentation prematurely.

The logic involved in selecting questions, grading and record keeping belongs in a servlet. Think Model-View-Controller for your architecture, the only place JSP might be used is View.

Don't even touch JSP until you can diagram the data flow and user interactions.

If this is a non-trivial project, spend some effort on thinking how exam authors will create questions.
