Didn't or Haven't?

I always got confused with these two words.

For example, there was one time, when i want to collect the assignments (that should be graded) from the lecturer-in-charge:

Lecturer: Do you have the answer scheme?
Me (nervous) : No, I haven't got... oh.. didn't get it yet.

So, which one is correct?

my advice is: see the question itself. it say "do you have..." so you have to answer accordingly i.e. "i have it" or "i don't have it yet"

simple :)

heh. my english also isn't perfectly correct above. i should say "it says" instead of "it say"

szakif betul dan logik. hihi.
kalau soalan tu 'have u got the scheme?' then u say 'i have/haven't got it' or 'yes/not yet.'

kalau 'did u get the scheme?'
well i think u know this one, 'i did/did not/yes/nope/didn't.'
