Exercise challenge using setattr

I don't understand what's wrong with my code, and it keeps telling me to try again.

class Student:
    def __init__(self, name, **kwargs):
        self.name = name
        for key, value in kwargs.items():
            setattr(self, key, value)

    def praise(self):
        return "You inspire me, {}".format(self.name)

    def reassurance(self):
        return "Chin up, {}. You'll get it next time!".format(self.name)

    def feedback(self, grade):
        if grade > 50:
            return self.praise()
        return self.reassurance()

I don't know what to tell you really, the code works for me when I tested it. Retry I guess? That's kind of odd.

Hey, anyone else struggling with this challenge, just copy and paste the code above. Something wrong with the challenge. I typed the exact same answer but it wasn't accepted until I copy and pasted my answer back in.
