To prevent you, future teachers from being as frustrated as I was & making as many visits as I did to the Hal Ehwal Pelajar (HEP or Student Affairs Department) where sometimes everyone is out for morning, mid-morning, afternoon or mid-afternoon tea...
Here is a complilation of all the infomation that has been gathered on the filling of the posting forms.
