Basic JavaScript - Declare a Read-Only Variable with the const Keyword

Tell us what’s happening:
Describe your issue in detail here.

  **Your code so far**
function printManyTimes(str) {
"use strict";

// Only change code below this line

const FCC = str + " is cool!";
for (let fact = 0; fact < str.length; fact+=2) {

Challenge: Basic JavaScript - Declare a Read-Only Variable with the const Keyword

Link to the challenge:

Hello there.

Please Tell us what’s happening in your own words.

Learning to describe problems is hard, but it is an important part of learning how to code.

Also, the more information you give us, the more likely we are to be able to help.

In the code so far, the instruction is that the string assigned to the const FCC; should not be changed, and it was never changed, but still I don’t seem to get why the test fails

The code you posted is completely different than the starting code for this challenge:

var fCC = "freeCodeCamp"; // Change this line
var fact = "is cool!"; // Change this line
fact = "is awesome!";
console.log(fCC, fact); // Change this line

It looks like you perhaps copied a very old solution to this problem from somewhere?

Thank you so much, refreshed the test and the new starting code for the challenge came up and the test has been passed now, Thanks.
