    Hello ishik,

    I am not sure if I have understood your question correctly. Do you want to auto generate a unique student number or you want to ensure that your form users input only a unique student id?

    If you want to auto generate a unique student number, you should add a "Unique ID" widget in your form which will auto generate a unique number. You can further customize it by adding prefix or number padding. The following guide should help you:  http://www.jotform.com/help/79-Add-Custom-Unique-IDs-to-your-Form-Submissions 

    If you want to ensure that your users only input a unique student ID, you can make the student id question a "Unique Question". This will prevent users from inputting the same student id again. The following guide should help you:  http://www.jotform.com/help/223-How-to-set-Form-Limits-Based-on-a-Unique-Question 

    Hope this helps.

    Do get back to us if you have any questions.

    Thank you!
