UC rules for student income

Hi all, we are recipients if UC credit, I have a small start up business and work part time. My wife did work part time but is now a full time (NHS degree) student. 
My question is about the rules for student income. Is it taken as 100% or does the 55p rule still apply? It seems that although she has received slightly less for the loan (monthly) we are also quite a lot down in our payment this month. I attach the relevant info for clarity. Thanks
