where am I wrong?

Please have a look at the code and please let me know where I am wrong. Thanks.

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 .' has made the Honor Roll';
}
else {
  echo $studentOneName ." has a GPA of $studentOneGPA";
  }

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

The instructions say that when the GPA is 4.0, then the output should be "NAME made the Honor Roll".

But this code outputs "NAME has made the Honor Roll`" instead. The extra word "has" is throwing it off.
