    Visual Basic help with program

    I earlier posted about a question for the project, and here I am confused again. I am still just learning Visual Basic, and our teacher barely explained loops and how to use them. This is the program:

    Create a Class Marks program that prompts the user for the number of students in the class. When the user clicks OK, the program should randomly generate a 9-digit student number that begins with "071" and marks between 30 and 100, and output the students number, marks and class average in a listbox control.

    My code so far:

    Dim total As Integer = Val(TextBox1.Text)
            Dim randomNumber As New Random
            Dim firstthree As String = "071"
            Dim first As Integer = randomNumber.Next(0, 9)
            Dim second As Integer = randomNumber.Next(0, 9)
            Dim third As Integer = randomNumber.Next(0, 9)
            Dim fourth As Integer = randomNumber.Next(0, 9)
            Dim fifth As Integer = randomNumber.Next(0, 9)
            Dim sixth As Integer = randomNumber.Next(0, 9)
            Dim grade As Integer = randomNumber.Next(30, 100)
            Dim studentNumber As String = firstthree & "-" & first & second & third & "-" & fourth & fifth & sixth
            Dim counter As Integer = 0
            If total = 5 Then
                Do While counter < 5
                    Marks.Items.Add(studentNumber & vbTab & grade)
                    counter += 1
            End If
    I'm still working on my code, I'm still learning so my code may not be the greatest. An issue I currently have is when I add the "studentNumber" and "grade" to the listbox they're all the same generated number when it should be all different. I don't know how to add up the grades in the listbox to find the average, so I have no idea on that part. ]If someone could help with that issue and also help with developing the code and program it would be a blessing.
