So in the challenge you only have one class, Student

What he's asking you to do is to intialize the name when you create a class. To do this you need to set up the init at the start of the class

class Student:
    def __init__(self):

See if you can figure out the rest :) if you get stuck I can give you a hand further on that.

The next is he wants to have the option of creating new attributes in the init incase he forgets something. You do this by adding **kwargs to the init and then also using setattr,

class Student:
    def __init__(self, **kwargs):

Have a look at how setattr works in the docs here: https://docs.python.org/3/library/functions.html#setattr

If you get stuck let me know and I'll explain how to get it done.
