    echo $studentOneName + ' has a GPA of ' + $studentOneGPA;

if ($studentTwoGPA == 4.0) {
    echo $studentTwoName + ' made Honor Roll';
} elseif ($studentTwoGPA != 4.0) {
    echo $studentTwoName + ' has a GPA of ' + $studentTwoGPA;

To combine strings in PHP, use . instead of +

' made Honor Roll' should be ' made the Honor Roll'

The challenge is expecting two else blocks rather than two elseif blocks.
