    I felt that she has/ I felt that she had

    What is the difference between

    "I felt that she has achieved ....." and "I felt that she had achieved ....."

    Is there any difference in the meaning?

    I felt that she has achieved
    The past perfect should be used here. She must have achieved earlier than 'I felt'.
