How you calculate your income will depend on the criteria defined in the scheme you wish to apply under ! Read through the "appropriate" guidance notes carefully :wink:.

Had it been 6 Vs 6 then the band which benefits you should have been chosen.
Below is the Caseworkers guidelines on Past Earnings -
If the applicant has lived and worked in more than one country during the past fifteen months, the caseworker will normally assess the total income over the total period being claimed up to a maximum of twelve months, against the country where the applicant has spent the longest period, on a pro-rata basis.
Some might say its old and out dated but this rule will always be valid, as its simple and logical.
PS - No intention to debate my opinion.
