awk question

I have a data set that has 9 columns (Name, Type, Score).
here's a sample name=name, Type = Q(for quiz) - E(for exams) - H(for Homework) - F(for final), Score = 90.
I can easily add up all my scores then divide them for average or mean (total/n). How do I assign the value to corresponding letter in an Array


Name   Type   Score   Type   Score   Type   Score   Type   Score
Jones     Q        90       H        100     E        74        F        75
Bob          q         80      H        70       e        88        f        77

if I want to ad all the digits after Q (like 90 and 80) to get the average, how would I throw them in an array to get the mean?
