C# C# Objects Inheritance Catching Exceptions

Checker does not seem to recognise catch statements

I have written the code effectively the same way as stated in the tutorial, however it doesn't seem to work or be able to recognise the catch statement. It just continues to ask me Did you write a catch statment to handle your exception.

Program.cs
int value = int.Parse(Console.ReadLine());

if (value < 0 || value > 20)
{
    throw new System.Exception();
}

try
{
Console.WriteLine(string.Format("You entered {0}",value));
}
catch(Exception)
{ 
    Console.WriteLine("Value is out of bounds!");
}

@Jamell Samuels nice work so far but you'll need to put the logic :

try
{
//if() statement goes here 
}

inside of the try block
