shoudn't you need a student_id in your table: payment?
Ryan ChongSoftware Team LeadCommented:
or you can try something like this?

select a.class, a.SumOftotal, a.SumOfremaining, b.SumOfammount from
(

SELECT Students.class, Sum(Students.total) AS SumOftotal, Sum(Students.remaining) AS SumOfremaining
FROM Students
GROUP BY Students.class
) as a 

inner join

(
SELECT payments.class, Sum(payments.ammount) AS SumOfammount
FROM payments
GROUP BY payments.class
) as b on a.class = b.class

Please try this-

SELECT p.class , SUM(s.total) as total , SUM(s.remaining) as remaining , SUM(p.ammount) as ammount
FROM 
Students as s
INNER JOIN payments as p ON p.class = s.class
GROUP BY p.class

Hey sami, did u try my suggestion ? It will give you the same output.
Ryan ChongSoftware Team LeadCommented:
@Pawan,

I think based on your statement above, it may return different (multiply effect) results if there are multiple payments based on the joining conditions.

@Ryan

No. It will give the same result as yours.
