What is form ?
Form means “a document with blank spaces for information to be inserted”. The information required in forms is usually quite similar to each other. Below are some kinds of information you need to fill out a form:
1. Name
This information is required in all kinds of form. Some forms require the information to be written in block letters or block capitals. It means you have to write everything in capital letters. In forms with boxes, leave one box space between each word.
You may also need to write a tittle. Pay attention to the kinds of the title below:
Mr. is used for all men. e.g Mr. Qomar
Mrs. is used for married woman. e.g Mrs. Qomar
Miss is used for a single woman (jomblo). e.g Miss Siti
2. Address
This is where you write about were you live. Write your address as complete as possible
Contact Number
Some forms need information about your work number and your phone number. Sometimes you need to choose or write the country code then write your phone number.
Date and Place of Birth
The abbreviation of date of birth is DOB and the abbreviation of place of birth is POB. In writing dates in boxes, write one number in each box. Usually, there are two boxes for the date. If your birth date is a single number like 3 and 9, you have to put the number 0 first to fill all the boxes. Sometimes you write the full number of year (2018), but sometimes you just need to write the two last numbers (18)
