Native English speakers, could you please help me with these issues?
1. Which is correct:
"Whatever I have achieved, it has been THROUGH merit."
"Whatever I have achieved, it has been ON merit."
2. And if both are, which is more standard?=

Anything and everything that is achieved is through merit, by definition of achievement, so the sentences hardly make sense, and neither of them is "standard." If you win something by luck, or are given it because of need, that is not "achievement."
