      I would say my biggest achievement was finishing my PhD. I spent over 20 years in full time education and I was glad when I finally finished

      My answer is the same as Fiona’s. Finishing my PhD is probably the biggest one to date.

      Becoming a professor is my biggest work achievement. I would also count raising two children whilst working as a more general achievement.

      Like all the previous answers my PhD is definitely one of my biggest achievements – I studied part time whilst I was working (and by the end raising a family too) so juggling work and study was hard. But the achievement I am equally proud of is actually passing my A Levels. At the Christmas before the exams I was predicted an N in physics and a U in chemistry. I got a C in both. I’m just not that good at sitting exams!
