Add an else if clause that tests to see if the isStudent variable is true. If it is then open an alert dialog with the message 'Welcome student'. Bummer! Did you add an else if clause to the conditional statement?

var isAdmin = false;
var isStudent = true;

Hi there! First, you've changed the original code it had there. And secondly, it explicitly asks for an else if statement. You just have an if and an else. Here's what it's expecting:

var isAdmin = false;
var isStudent = true;

if ( isAdmin ) {
    alert('Welcome administrator')
} else if(isStudent) {
  alert('Welcome student')
