I am not sure I found all errors. I believe this line should have two equal signs } isAdmin + isStudent == false and the number of braces are not equal. They should be in pairs {}. I think the last } needs to be deleted.

Hi there, Ryan Myers ! If you restart the challenge, you'll be given the beginning code again. You were only meant to add an else statement to this. So in addition to already existing code you should only add the else part.

Some pseudocode:

} else {
   // set message equal to "Access denied"
}

Hope this helps! :sparkles:
