Some universities use student ids in the form of e.g. "T14C999".
Letters represent student's faculty and department.

This is an example usage of a new command for such student ids.


Then it will render:

[]T []0 []0 []A []0 []0 []0
[]C []1 []1 []B []1 []1 []1
    []2 []2 []C []2 []2 []2
    []3 []3     []3 []3 []3

using a "true" student id takes a lot of vertical space because ten digits are necessary, therefore limiting the number of questions.
with ~100 students, one might have three 5-digit columns, or four 4-digit columns, etc
since everything finally boils up to having a code in a .csv file, the feature could be useful for that purpose too.
