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

Why is this challenge not accepting my code? It says "Bummer ! You add the else clause, but I did include it in my code.

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 final else clause doesn't include parentheses. But this is okay because since we're checking for "truthy" values in both other conditions then the only other alternative is that they're both false.

You also have a stray full stop in your code. :-)
