I am getting a syntax error. Help

I cannot figure out why I am getting a syntax error. Any help would be appreciated.

$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;

You missed '$' sign before variable names in your condition statements (line 10 and 15). Also you should add a semicolon at the end of the line 11.
