you're "else" is nested inside the "if" block, not after it. You need an indented block of code to execute when the if is true, then the "else" statement at the same indent level, and then the else block indented once more.

if condition:
  var = true
  var = false

also, in your "else" block, you don't need to put admitted in quotes. currently that is a literal string value, not a varibale.

  admitted = false
