Task/Quiz is wrong I get the correct answer in the terminal. Add a final else clause to this conditional statement.

Here's my code

const isAdmin = false;
const isStudent = false;
let message;

if (isAdmin) {
  message = 'Welcome admin';
} else if (isStudent) {
  message = 'Welcome student';
} else {
  message = "Access denied";

The output in the console of message is Access denied but it gives an error of "Did you add an else clause to the end of the conditional statement?"

The full task is Add a final else clause to this conditional statement. If both the isAdmin and isStudent variables are false, the value of the message variable should be "Access denied".

You forgot to supply a link, but I assume you're working on the Add a final 'else' Clause challenge.
I tried copy-pasting your code directly into the challenge and it passed.
