I'm stuck on my MAXROW is suppose to be 40 but everytime I input it I get a weird output. I'm pretty sure my counter is correct. Can someone please take a lookk and direct somehow.

Some confusing bits in your code.
Sometimes you start your column loop with 1 and sometimes 0.
If you used CODE=C you would get line numbers for reference!

Remove
*rowcount = row;
*colcount = col;
from within the double loop. You pass in an array of known fixed size MAXCOL but then you're setting the colcount?

Set rowcount outside the loop! And since you also know its size since the loop is hardcoded MAXROW MAXCOL, the pointer to counts are redundant!

Arrange our code so its more readable. You have the quiz 123 = 50% vs 50% outside the function but put a notation near the equation. And orient your code to make it more apparent and try to align them somewhat keeping the sum of 3 and the sum of 2 visually separate! And you have an error in your score tally. You're using a double loop, row x col but you've hardcoded your col references.

for (int row = 0; row < rowcount; row++)
     {
         //calculating the student average
         rowAvrg [row] = (((studentScores [row][1] 
                      + studentScores[row][2] 
                      + studentScores[row][3]) /3.0) *0.5)+
                       (((studentScores [row][4] 
                            + studentScores [row][5]) /2.0) * 0.5);
   }

If you aren't going to use braces on concatenated lines (which is a mistake) then atleast put a blank line between it and the next line!
Also notice the blank line I added in the following code. Also did you mean col = 1 ??? What happened to 0? I mentioned this earlier!

for (int col = 1; col < MAXCOL; col++)
     {
        for (int row = 0; row < rowcount; row++)
                     //calculating the class average of quizzes
                      colAvrg[col] += (*(*(studentScores+row)+col));

         colAvrg [col] /= rowcount;
   }

Please cleanup and repost!

I understand what you mean by the redundancy but that's what was stated the file reading has StudId, Quiz, Quiz, Quiz, Quiz, Quiz,
am reading in 15 rows but the max will be 40. Which is what I need the counter.

Ok thanks I understand on the quiz 123 = 50% vs 50%.

ohh the reason I'm using on the col = 1 is because the file read in starts with the StudId.

is this what you mean by taking it out of the loop I still get the same output.

for(row=0; row < MAXROW; ++row)
   {
     for(col=0; col < MAXCOL; ++col)
     { 
     fscanf(studentGrades, "%d", (*(studentScores+row)+col));       //Pointer notation.
    
     }
   }
  *rowcount = row;
  *colcount = col;

Then you should use a while loop instead of a for loop. The for loop is meant to loop a specific number of times, and the while loop is used to loop until a specific condition is met -- like reading the last line in a file.

You may want to post again, use the code tages with the C assignment CODE=C so we get line numbers. Change your tabs to spaces, about 3 characters each tab should do it. It'll make your code easier to read.
