1. It's a good idea to write in capital letters so it’s easy to read, except for your email address and signature.
2. For dates, in the UK we usually write them DD/MM/YYYY (day-month-year). So, for 1 September 2018 you write 01/09/2018. In the United States it is MM/DD/YYYY so you write 09/01/2018.
3. If you don't understand every word on the form, don't panic. You can probably guess what information you need to write. Ask someone for help if you need to.
Filled up means to make something full. It often describes the physical state of a container. A car can be filled up with petrol or gasoline, for example, or a cup can be filled up with a drink. A calendar can be filled up with meetings.
Filled in or filled out can both describe a form or document which is completed with information. You might fill out (fill in) a form when you apply for a passport, for example.
You can check the meanings of words like this in any good dictionary, where you'll find the full range of meanings with examples:
