I'm pretty sure my solution is doing what is asked, but isn't being accepted. It's keeping me from moving on..

Do the variables need to be concatenated in some specific way? It would help if we could see the code that is being run as the test so I can see why I'm failing.

The error message is "Use the Variables to output the message", which I am doing.

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 \n";
    } else {
    echo "$studentOneName has a GPA of $studentOneGPA \n";
    };

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

You've got it, except for a little typo on the last line where you have "$studentTwoname" (lower case "n") instead of "$studentTwoName" (upper case "N").

Thanks!

I caught that but then couldn't find a way to get to my question to update it! I appreciate the look :)

Did you try selecting "My Posts" instead of "Newest" in the box next to the Search line?

The 'get help' flow never directed me to the community area, just from submitting my question back to the challenge.

I'd never submitted a question before so hadn't realized I needed to navigate to the community area to look for it,

Makes sense now though! Thanks.
