Check if each student has a GPA of 4.0.

If the student has a GPA of 4.0, use the student name variable to replace NAME when displaying the following line:

NAME made the Honor Roll

ELSE If the students GPA is not equal to 4.0, within an else block, use the student name variable to replace NAME AND the student GPA variable to replace STUDENT GPA when displaying the following line:

NAME has a GPA of STUDENT GPA

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

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

//Place your code below this comment
if($studentOneGPA == 4.0 || $studentTwoGPA == 4.0);{
  echo "$studentOneName || $studentTwoName".' made the Honor Roll';

Ok so the first problem is you've got some semicolons where they don't belong in the beginning of both of your if statements.

<?php 
if($studentOneGPA == 4.0 || $studentTwoGPA == 4.0)[remove semicolon you have here] ?>

and

<?php 
elseif($studentOneGPA != 4.0 || $studentTwoGPA != 4.0)[remove this semicolon as well] ?>

After you correct those syntax errors andyou will probably have to make separate if statements for each student. Right now you are checking them both at the same time and your code is executing if EITHER of them has made the honor roll. If you hit the 'preview' button (after you fix your semicolons) you will see that you're not getting the output you want
