How is Everybody Doing? - string indices must be integers, not str
#2

This list should contain identifiers (reference pointers) not strings.

Thank you! But i still have the same problem:

Ya dinna change the identifiers. Are ya a wee bit daft, laddie?

#8

in your list of 3 students...
students = ["lloyd", "alice", "tyler"]
try removing the quotation marks. its reading them as strings rather than identifiers from what i understand.
