Setters Code Challenge Difficulty

Followed the same format that she mentioned in the video- having trouble figuring out what I'm doing wrong.

Would anyone mind helping me critique my code? Thanks in advance!

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

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

  set major(major){
    if (this.level === 'Senior' || this.level === 'Junior'){
      this.major = 'major';
    } else {
       this.major = 'None';
}


}

    }
}

var student = new Student(3.9, 60);

I am fairly new to Javascript, but could the answer be that there is a mistake with the quotations? (i.e. in the "set major (major)", both Senior and Junior are preceded with ' and followed by ")

I did notice that, fixed it but still returned "Unexpected Identifier"

 set major(major) {
  if (this.level === 'Senior' || this.level === 'Junior') {
    this.major = major;
  } else {
    this.major = 'none';
  }

Above is what I have now.

Hey Daniel,

You're really close! Try using a backing property instead of referencing the major property directly inside your if statement.

Good luck!
