This code is outputting correctly but I'm still getting an error

I'm pasting my code on the workspace and it's telling me that Dave has a GPA of 3.8 and Treasure made the Honor Roll. So far, so good, the if statements are working correctly, yet I'm getting an error that doesn't let me pass it. It says "BUMMER! You will need to create seperate if statements for each student"

Am I not? When I preview the code on the challenge window I don't get a new line between the two statements, but when I do it in workspace I get Dave's and Treasure's statements in separate lines.

What am I doing wrong?

$studentOneName = 'Dave';
$studentOneGPA = 3.8;

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

//Place your code below this comment
if ($studentOneGPA == 4.0) {
  echo $studentOneName . "made the Honor Roll"; 
} elseif ($studentOneGPA <= 4.0) {
  echo $studentOneName . " has a GPA of " . $studentOneGPA . "\n";

if ($studentTwoGPA == 4.0) {
  echo $studentTwoName . " made the Honor Roll \n";
} elseif ($studentTwoGPA <= 4.0) {
  echo $studentTwoName . "has a GPA of" . $studentTwoGPA . "\n";

Looks like they just want you to use else block, not else if. Try this.


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;
