JavaScript JavaScript Basics Making Decisions in Your Code with Conditional Statements Write an 'if' Statement

Create a conditional statement that tests if the isAdmin variable is true.

I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong

var isAdmin = false;
var isStudent = false;

if ( isAdmin === true) {
  console.log("Hello Admin.");
} else if ( isAdmin === false) {
  console.log("Are you a student?");

It looks like you may have confused this challenge with a later one. You won't need "else" in this one.

But the instructions say to test the variable and then assign "message" with a particular value. But the declaration of "message" originally provided seems to be missing here. And string to be assigned is different from the one shown here. And you won't need to log anything.

I did get it messed up and I figured it out. Thanks!
