I'm not too sure what you're asking. Next time provide an explanation of the problem you're having instead of simply reciting the challenge's question. Anyhow, it's asking you to write a simple getter method. If you're still unsure with these, I suggest you go back and revise the previous videos that explain them. For additional help, you can read this helpful resource.

To write a getter method, use this syntax:

get level() { }

The get keyword tells JavaScript that this function is used to return a property.

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

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

set major(name) {

}

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';
    }
}

}

var student = new Student(3.9, 60);
