Can not go through the challenge...

The bummer says to me: "Bummer: Make sure you add the proper spacing, especially near variables." My code is running on my local server, but the TreeHouse challenge asks for more.... And I don't understand what exactly is wrong...

index.php
<?php
$studentOneName = 'Dave';
$studentOneGPA = 3.8;

$studentTwoName = 'Treasure';
$studentTwoGPA = 4.0;

//Place your code below this comment

if ($studentOneGPA == 4.0) {
echo $studentOneName."  made the Honor Roll";}
else {
  echo $studentOneName.' has a GPA of '.$studentOneGPA;
}

if ($studentTwoGPA == 4.0) {
echo $studentTwoName."  made the Honor Roll";}
else {
  echo $studentTwoName.' has a GPA of '.$studentTwoGPA;
}
?>

Hey, you're super close of completing this challenge. The problem here is that you put two spaces in here:

echo $studentOneName."  made the Honor Roll";}

And here:

echo $studentTwoName."  made the Honor Roll";}

Look closely, there are two spaces here. I know it's hard to tell, but all you have to do here is just to remove the extra space here then you're good to go!

You have two spaces in " made the Honor Roll". Delete one space in both and you are good.
