    That doesn't sound right. Usually you only have to study 20 hours a week to be considered FT. Maybe it would be worth speaking to a different person at Centrelink? I've notice answers to questions vary amongst who you ask.

    I spoke to them! It was a system generated mistake and has considered my child as a primary student even though he turns 4 in may and starts kindergarten.

    I used to work for Centrelink and know that the payment goes through 2 days before, will just have to wait till the debit is raised & pay it back! I'll just keep it aside!

    Other posters have tried to explain the table to you when it seems to make perfect sense to all of us, but somehow not you. The confusion with you not knowing what the year levels are called and your misunderstanding that all the years of primary school could somehow be described as 'pre-primary' has me quite amused. Perhaps having a friend with children who attend school to explain the table to you might be helpful?

    Out of interest's sake, did your child go to kindergarten in WA last year or has this confusion also caused your child to miss a year of Pre-school (or kindergarten as we call it)?
    please don't treat me like an idiot.
    My ds was in 4yr kindy in 2012.

    Does it all make sense KG? I can see how you misread the graph, I hope it's clear now

    Is this at uni?

    If it is 3 units are classed as full time. You can do no less than 3 units. So you have to be studying .75.

    But this payment is different to the school kids bonus payment though.
