'Unexpected identifier', no matter what I do

I keep getting 'Unexpected identifier', despite tinkering with the syntax many times. I just can't spot the error – can anyone help?

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';
        }
    }

  get major() {
    return this._major;
  }

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

var student = new Student(3.9, 60);

Hi Samantha, I think you just missing one closing curly bracket " }" , you can add one more closing bracket " } " before var student = new Student(3.9, 60);

For example :

    }   

} }

var student = new Student(3.9, 60);

Goh Khee Hao — Good eye! :+1: You should post your "comment" as an answer, so it can receive votes, and so Samantha can choose it as a "best answer" if she wants.

If I were a moderator, I'd promote it to an answer for you (and add Markdown to format the code block, something else you can fix yourself).

Hi Goh, thanks for your comment. I tried that, but now I just get the error message: "Bummer: Unexpected token }" I've looked again and again but can't see where the bug is.

Hi Samantha,

I tried pasting your code into the challenge, and "Unexpected token" is the error message that I got before I made any changes to it.

Then, after adding in the missing close brace, it passed the challenge!
