Setter Methods

Hi Team, I run the program passing values to the set method and it returns what is requested. I don't know what is missing. Please Help Me....

creating_setters.js
class Student {
    constructor(gpa, credits){
        this.gpa = gpa;
        this.credits = credits;
    }

    stringGPA() {
        return this.gpa.toString();
    }

    get major() {
        return this._major;
        } 

    set major(major) {
      this._major = major;
      if ( student.level == 'Junior' || student.level == 'Senior') {
        return this._major;
      } else if ( student.level == 'Freshman' || student.level == 'Sophomore') {
        this._major = 'None';
      }
    }

    get level() {
        if (this.credits > 90 ) {
            return 'Senior';
        } else if (this.credits > 60) {
            return 'Junior';
        } else if (this.credits > 30) {
            return 'Sophomore';
        } else {
            return 'Freshman';
        }
    }
}

var student = new Student(3.9, 60);

Hi Team, I understood thar the Setter method does not return any value and that it has to work in conjuntion with the Getter method so that it can return the set value. Greeting.

Change student.level to this.level.
