Hello!

You should read carefully the errors the console throws at you. It talks about some variable doesn't seem to exist (i.e. it's not defined). It says: `global name 'sudent' is not defined`. You probably meant `student`.

Hi!

I am still not sure how to define student without using loops or strings. When i define student it still does not work, I can show that as well if it helps

#4

No, what the error meant is that inside your code there is a variable that doesn't exist. What the console doesn't know is that you just made a typo. Student is already defined. Read the error again.

I hope this helps.
