    In many cases, they are interchangeable. 完成 has a sense of achievement and completion. 結束 means the process of something is finished/complete/over.

    了 indicates past tense.

    完 is a complement like 好, 到 -- -- complements go after verbs.

    EX: 吃完了(finished eating it), 做好了(it's done, and done well), 看到了(saw it, achieve the seeing of something)

    There all have a same meaning.
    '结束' —finish
    '完了'—over, which exists mostly in the oral.


    over, end
    game over 游戏结束
    they ended the play with a song. 他们以一首歌曲结束了这出剧。

    finish, complete
    when will you finish your homework?你什么时候完成家庭作业?
    when will the building work be complete?建筑工作什么时候完成?

    完了 this one is more colloquial, always used in the end of a sentence or alone.
    1 gosh
    完了,我忘了带钥匙。oh, gosh, I forgot my keys.
    2 finished, over
    作业做完了 work finished
    书看完了 finished reading the book
    课上完了 the class is over

    finished, the end

    2.结束 表示某些事情,某些关系,通常是指物体,或者抽象事情,表示完了的意思,没有了,不再继续了。
    3.完成 表示某些事情Done好了,FINISH。
    4.SO. 所以完了>结束>完成


    It is kind of done-->結束和完成。 screw up --> 完了。
