Ans:

You may like to structure your answer in three parts. First, what was/were the mistake/s and why did it occur? It is important that you take ownership of these mistakes and do not blame anybody else. This part may form about 20-25% of your answer. Second, what corrective action, if any, did you take to rectify it? This part may be about another 20-25% of your answer. Finally, what have you learnt about yourself from these mistakes and how will this help you to prevent similar mistakes in future? This last part is the most important one and should be about 50-60% of your answer.

Ans:

First, achievements and accomplishments are similar, so your answers would also be similar if asked about either. Second, your answer should include why you consider these accomplishments as 'the biggest'? I suggest that you may use following parameters: accomplishments which were very difficult to achieve, those which resulted in great learning - it could be improvement in your knowledge or/and skills, those which make you proud of yourself, and those which had the greatest positive impact on others. Finally, your accomplishments are a stepping stone for even bigger accomplishments in future
