JavaScript Object-Oriented JavaScript Getters and Setters Creating Getter Methods

i can't get it

inside the getter method add a conditional statement

class Student {
    constructor(gpa, credits){
        this.gpa = gpa;
        this.credits = credits;
    get level() {}
    const level = new Data();
    const marks = level.getMarks();
  if(student> 90 && student <= 90) {
        return 'Senior';
  } else {      
    return 'Junior';
     return  'Freshman';
    stringGPA() {
        return this.gpa.toString();

Hi Im not sure what you are doing with new Data() and level.getMarks(). You might think of the Date() object. But its not needed for this exercise.

We want to return a String senior, junior etc. Depending how much credits they have. When we write this.credits we get a number back saying how much credit they have. eg. 30

    get level() {
        if (this.credits > 90 ) { // if our credit is above 90 we want to do this
            return 'Senior';
        } else if (this.credits > 60) { // if our credit is above 60 we want to do this (if its above 90 the above will kick in first)
            return 'Junior';
        } else if (this.credits > 30) { // if our credit is above 30 we want to do this (if its above 60 the above will kick in first)
            return 'Sophomore';
        } else { // for the rest less than we want to return the string Freshman (this will be 30 and below)
            return 'Freshman';

thank you
