Here's a few hints:

  • you won't need to use "var_dump"
  • you should compare the student GPA to 4.0, not their name
  • you should include the student name as part of of the "honor roll" message
  • you can use a plain "else", you don't need "elseif"
  • you should include the student GPA in the "else" message
  • repeat the test/echo/else/echo code for both students
