My code seems to be correct ! whats wrong

Community , you have to help me with this , i think i've done right

public class TeacherAssistant {

  public static String validatedFieldName(String fieldName) {
    if(fieldName.charAt(0)!='m' && Character.isUpperCase(fieldName.charAt(1)))
      throw new IllegalArgumentException("Bummer ! field name requirements not matched !");
    // These things should be verified:
    // 1.  Member fields must start with an 'm'
    // 2.  The second letter in the field name must be uppercased to ensure camel-casing
    // NOTE:  To check if something is not equal use the != symbol. eg: 3 != 4
    return fieldName;

Code challenges are picky. You said "Bummer ! field name requirements not matched !" as your error message while it's supposed to be "Bummer! Field name requirements not matched!".

Good luck!

Hope this helps, Alex
