(1) obtained financial assistance for the preceding year of allocation under the loans and bursaries program and no contribution is required from the student pursuant to section 1 for the year of allocation; and
(2) interrupts his or her full-time studies before the beginning of the year of allocation or during the year of allocation for a period not exceeding 4 months and resumes the studies before the end of the year of allocation.
