    filled in

    (1) Please check that the form has been filled in correctly.
    (2) Please check that the form is filled in correctly.

    This is to be used when asking someone to check the form they filled in, before sending it.

    Could anyone please tell me which is correct?
    I guess (1) is correct, but I'm not sure about (2).

    Both are correct.

    If I were saying this, I would use #2 before someone started filling in the form and #1 before they handed it in.

    Logically, #2 should go at the top of the form and #1 should go at the bottom, but I don't think that it's a point that people would get upset about.
