President William Ruto’s team revealed that Junior Secondary Schools will remain in their respective primary schools and that the exam will only be used for assessment to monitor progress.

Data from the Kenya Institute of Curriculum Development (KICD) has revealed that Junior Secondary School pupils will take a total of 23 subjects.
