Yes i can play open and premier but if i am in premier my points earned in open are not going in the leaderboard. Here is a copy of the rules.
Notes: Even though the tournaments are open to anyone in the PokerStars.com client, only tournament results for players that are already school members will be scored for the leaderboard. School members who are eligible to play in the Premier League are not prevented from playing in the Open League Tournaments, but their results will not be scored for the Open League Leaderboard.

But you can play that ticket/tournament like a freeroll, enter play, and if you get ITM, nice for you, if not, isnt the end of the world, keep playing the school league for the month and get points there. Maybe its a mistake, but with the latest updates in the room, maybe is the answer to this question, but you hit the ticket, use.

I just received an answer fro PSO today and i played the open league yesterday for nothing copy of answer enclose.
Greetings from P***************e!
Please note that even though you finished last month in a lower, non -qualifying position in our ranking, you were still eligible to receive the Premier League ticket. This is due to the fact that some members who finished higher in the ranking did not fulfill the requirements to get the ticket. Such tickets were forfeited and passed on to players lower in the ranking.
Please note that once you have qualified to participate in the Premier Skill League it is not possible to opt out in favour of participating in the Open Skill League. This restriction is in place because the Premier Skill League has been designed to have exactly 1,500 players participating. If players were allowed to opt out of participation this would mean that the League would fall below the 1,500 required participants.
Those players who manage to qualify will have their accounts credited with a ticket that allows them to participate in the current month's Premier League. As it is not possible to opt out of participation it is also not possible for us to cancel the ticket. The ticket is already set to expire at the end of the month.
Players that qualified to play in the Premier League may continue to play in Open League tourneys but their results will not appear in the Open League leaderboard.
The Premier League has a total of $30,000 in prizes each month awarded to the top 500 players and is capped at 1,500 participants (1 in 3 receives a prize!). This offers a much greater chance to receive a prize compared to the Open League, which has a total of $11,800 in prizes each month awarded to the top 2,000 players without any cap on the number of participants.
Should there be any further questions, please do not hesitate to ask.
