The user inputs their first name, then their exam mark. I am wanting to check if the mark of this student is already recorded, if it is then I will ask if they want to overwrite this. Should I be using something along the lines of this?:
No. Marks are not the keys of the map, they're the values. If you want to see whether a student already have a mark, you have to check the map if it already contains their name as a key. Also, you need to negative your logic: Even if you replaced mark with name, you would be checking whether the map does NOT contain the name.
You should check the input == "Y" condition inside the if-statement above it.
Finally, don't declare variables before you need them, and use try-with-resources to close your resources when you're done with them.
you should check the input == "Y" condition inside the if-statement above it.
This is an incorrect comparison. The variable `input` is of type char, so should be compared to 'Y', not "Y".
And if it were of type String, comparing using == is still incorrect.
And note that `input` is not in scope outside of the if-block.
