JavaScript JavaScript Basics Making Decisions in Your Code with Conditional Statements Add a Final 'else' Clause

Why is this challenge not accepting my answer with all three conditional statements?

script.js
const isAdmin = false;
const isStudent = false;
let message;

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

The else clause at the end of your code doesn't need a condition.

The code inside the else clause will run as long as no other else if statements are met.

You also have a period after the 'Access denied' string.

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

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