About UUM Merit Form Filler

UUM Merit Form Filler is a web automation which helps automate entering a matric number to the UUM system in order for participants to obtain a merit score.

The reason why this code exists because i was involved in a GDSC UUM tech workshop which had a total of 355 participants. At first, i tried to enter it manually but it was too tedious. Then, i researched on how to automate it and boom I figured it out and it works.
