Your checklist

Have you got everything you need?

[ ✔ ] a passport photo

[ ✔ ] a copy of my passport or other photo ID

[ ✔ ] proof of address

Your card will be issued within 15 days and sent to the address provided.


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.

The last form I filled in was an extracurricular activities application form. Actually, there are a lot of forms we need to fill in in our daily life. For example: a library card application form, a job application form, a bank account application form… So I think knowing the basic technical of form filling is a must in the real world. But one thing I always mixed up! It is hard for me to distinguish between first name, surname and first name! Whenever I pick up an application form, I do have to think for a long time for how to fill in my name!

Help! What is the difference between Filled in, Filled out, Filled up?

Soumis par Peter M. le jeu 22/04/2021 - 06:53

En réponse à par mirtha


Hello mirtha,

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:
