Hi there! You're doing fairly well, but there's no need to import anything. Also it asks you to print the name of the new student you made. You've typed me.name but that doesn't do anything by itself. It either needs to be assigned to a variable or displayed in some way. I've altered your code slightly and included comments. Take a look:

class Student:  #create a new class named Student
    name = "PreM"  #set the name property to your name

me = Student()  #create a new instance of Student and assign it to a variable
print(me.name)  #print the student's name

Hope this helps! :sparkles:
