Hi Paul, Sorry about that, after playing around a bit longer I found that this works.

class Student:
    name = "Ollie"

me = Student()
print(me.name)

It looks like once you have created the "me" instance you can then access the attributes of the class through that instance.

I hope this helps, Ollie.

Thank you so much ollie i really struggled with this one.

Hi Paul,

I just completed this challenge and the following code worked for me.

class Student:
  name = "Ollie"
print(Student.name)

I hope this helps, Ollie.

Hi ollie. This did not work for me because it wants an instance called "me" in it. My error code is ""Bummer: Couldn't find me""
