I have a form like the one below which is posted to processForm.php, and the user can dynamically add more with jquery.

<input type="text" name="subject[]" />
<input type="text" name="grade[]" />
<input type="text" name="year[]" />

<input type="text" name="subject[]" />
<input type="text" name="grade[]" />
<input type="text" name="year[]" />

<input type="text" name="subject[]" />
<input type="text" name="grade[]" />
<input type="text" name="year[]" />

Please How can i access those arrays from subject[], grade[] and year[] inputs by the user?

Assuming using POST instead of GET

$_POST['subject'][0]
$_POST['grade'][0]
$_POST['year'][0]
$_POST['subject'][1]
$_POST['grade'][1]
$_POST['year'][1]
$_POST['subject'][2]
$_POST['grade'][2]
$_POST['year'][2]
