By MCQ if you mean multiple choice questions, then you can do it like this:

1) Design a user interface with the question as a Label (or readonly TextBox) control,

2) Add 4 radiobuttons or checkboxes representing each of the options and a button to submit the answer.

3) When the user clicks the submit button after selecting the options, the code in your program should compare the selected answer with the actual answer (this may be stored in database so you can retrieve it from the database and compare)

4) Based on the result of comparison, increment the score.

5) Repeat above steps for n questions.

6) Display final score.

Note, above listed steps are just a basic idea, you can build on that to make it more complex.

Hope this helps,

Although you can use any other approach to store the questions and answers (such a text file for eg), an Access or SQL Server database would be best suited for this scenario.

The code for the next button will include, retrieval of next question and options from the data source (file/database), if any are present. If you have reached the last question, clicking the next button can confirm whether user wants to end the exam, if yes, then display the calculated score.
It would be easy to show the code here but if you really want to learn and grow, you should try implementing yourself based on above hints.
