Python Python Basics (2015) Logic in Python Conditional Value

I do not understand

I do not understand what is being asked by 'set admitted as True' I am trying to set the condition that should go through if age is > to 13 but there seems to be a syntax error that I am missing. I have reviewed the video but still unable to correct my code ...

admitted = None
If age> 13:
    admitted is None

They want you to set the admitted variable to True if age is greater than 13.

if age > 13:
    admitted = True # <- This is only executed if the age is greater than 13

'set admitted as True' just means that you assign True to your admitted variable.
