Staff member saying “From what you say it sounds like your tutor believes your grades are ok.  Can you tell me though about how you feel your grades aren’t good enough?“

Staff member saying “I’m aware as you say, there are lots of judgements in society about having a termination.  I’m interested though in how you feel about the possibility of you having that procedure.”
