Hey!

When creating a new instance of your class you don't need to write the property name, but only its value, like this:

const student = new Student(3.9);

Keep in mind that it is common practice to capitalize the first letter of a class name (e.g. class Student) but variables are mostly kept lower case (e.g. const student).

Hope this helps!
