    Achieving/Achieved the top-ranking among 50 students in..........

    Hello,

    This is a phrase to be used in my C.V and I am not sure about the bold part.

    "Achieving/Achieved the top-ranking among 50 students in.......... "

    Thanks.

    I would use "achieved" if it is just a bullet point.

    If it is a bullet point, ie. a list, then all entries should begin with the same part of speech:
    Among my achievements:

    • Achieved the top-ranking among 50 students in.......... "
    • Succeeded in this
    • Did that


    Don't mix them, as in:

    • Achieving this;
    • Succeeded in this;
    • Doing that
    • Having done something else."
