I really dont understand the question

I am having a hard time understanding what is really needed for this quiz. I thought that I had understood this, but for some reason I just keep getting an error back....

class Student {
    constructor(gpa, credits){
        this.gpa = gpa;
        this.credits = credits;

    set major(_major) {
      if (this.credits > 60){
        return this.log.push(major);
      } else {
        return 'None';

    stringGPA() {
        return this.gpa.toString();

    get level() {
        if (this.credits > 90 ) {
            return 'Senior';
        } else if (this.credits > 60) {
            return 'Junior';
        } else if (this.credits > 30) {
            return 'Sophomore';
        } else {
            return 'Freshman';

var student = new Student(3.9, 60);

Here's a few hints:

  • there is no "log" attribute in the Student class
  • the function needs to create a backing property named "_major"
  • the backing property is a scalar variable, you won't need to "push" anything
  • the test will determine what value to store in the backing property
  • setters don't need to return anything
  • you might want to review the Setters video for examples
