All exams will count for 60 per cent of the final grade with the rest made up by continuous assessment.

New Leaving Cert reforms will decrease stress levels among local students over the exam period.

That's according to Monaghan's Adam Lambe, who is Deputy President of the Irish Second-Level Student's Union.

Written exams for the Leaving Cert will only be worth 60 per cent of marks under new reforms announced by Education Minister Norma Foley yesterday.

The Teachers Union of Ireland believes any new reforms should be applied with caution due to the current crisis of staff recruitment and retention facing the sector.

However, Mr Lambe says the new Leaving Cert model will promote a "better way" of learning for young people.
