Could you just write students[i].name etc for accessing the properties in each object? Instead of student=students[i]

Instead of creating a whole new variable to store the properties of each object in the array couldn't you just write students[i].name/students[i].track etc for each property?

Yes, but sometimes the instructors will create variables to increase readability or to make a point obvious to the students. In programming, there are usually multiple ways to accomplish any task.
