Python Python Basics (2015) Logic in Python Conditional Value

when I do the challenge tasks I frequently get the error "Oops! It looks like Task 1 is no longer passing."

why do the challenge tasks keep dropping out with the rror message " Oops! It looks like Task 1 is no longer passing."

admitted = True
if age>13:
    admitted = True
    admitted = False

Hey Mike,

regarding your question. The Treehouse app is not always 100%. Sometimes it throws different errors that don't make much sense. Sometimes it even allows you to move forward from a task without having the correct code, and that could lead to the 'task 1 no longer passsing' error in the next section.

In your code for this specific task for example, you didn't have to change 'admitted' to True outside of the 'if' block. What I'm thinking happened here is that you changed it in the first task, and the app checked to see if it was set to True. And on task 2, it tried checking for False and got an error. Anyway, here is how your code should look like:

admitted = None
if age >= 13:
    admitted = True
    admitted = False

I put my code the same way as this and i still got the task no longer working error.
