Can someone please let me know where I'm messing up in the code?

I'm not sure where I'm messing up at.

class Student {
    constructor(gpa, credits){
        this.gpa = gpa;
        this.credits = credits;

    stringGPA() {
        return this.gpa.toString();

    get level() {
        if (this.credits > 90 ) {
            return 'Senior';
        } else if (this.credits > 60) {
            return 'Junior';
        } else if (this.credits > 30) {
            return 'Sophomore';
        } else {
            return 'Freshman';

  set major(major) {

    this._major = 'major';

    if (this.credits === 'Senior' || this.credits === 'Junior' ) {
      return this._major;

    else {
      this._major = 'none';
      return this._major;




var student = new Student(3.9, 60);

In the line this._major = 'major';, you are setting this._major to the string 'major' rather than the value of the parameter major.

In the line if (this.credits === 'Senior' || this.credits === 'Junior' ) {, this.credits refers to the number of credits that a Student has. You could replace this.credits with this.level to compare a string with a string.

You don't need to return anything in the setter method.
