You're close, but your syntax is a little off. You need to remove the parentheses around the condition.

if age>=13:

I hope this helps!

I'm not sure of the reason for this, but it doesn't work with () around the condition.

Do it like this:

if age >= 13:
    admitted = True

You can edit out the parenthesis to make your code pass this level but in practice you should use parenthesis. Treehouse challenges have a criteria for passing a particular code, they match your code with the correct answer and check the output of a couple of inputs, in this case you have encountered a bug/error. PS: Try running the same code in workspaces or on your machine, because it should work.
