var isAdmin = false;
var isStudent = false;

if ( isAdmin ) {
    alert('Welcome administrator');
} else if (isStudent) {
    alert('Welcome student');

For your final condition, you only need "else" with no "if" or conditions, since you want it to handle any case not already covered by the previous tests.

I think there is a syntax error in the final line of your JS file. The semi-colon should be at the end of the line above, not after the bracket.

Hope that helps.
