In a bid to bring further improvement in 12th and 10th class results, Jharkhand Academic Council (JAC) has decided to provide model question papers for both classes every month starting from June this year, officials privy to the development said.
The model question papers are expected to help students to complete their syllabus and obtain good marks in the examinations, as a number of questions in sample papers might be repeated in the final exams.
JAC chairman, Arvind Prasad Singh, said, “We used to upload model question papers for 10th and 12th classes on council’s website two months before the examination. This year, we have decided to provide sample papers every month, which will begin from June or July.”
“The sample papers would be circulated in schools so that teachers could evaluate the performance of the students every month. If we could provide mere five sets of model question papers, it would help students cover entire syllabus,” he said.
JAC declared the results of intermediate (12th) science and commerce on May 14 and matriculation (10th) on May 16. While 57% students passed in the science, 70.44 in commerce respectively. Similarly, the 10th class results declared on Thursday recorded 70.77% pass percentage.
State education department faced criticism for poor results in the intermediate science. The results also exposed that the school of state science topper, Radheyshyam Saha, had no science teacher.
Performance of 10 districts including West Singhbhum, Godda, Latehar, East Singhbhum, Sahebganj, Chatra, Gumla, Jamtara, Khunti and Pakru performed at worst where the pass percentage did not even touch 50% marks. Pakur remained the worst with abysmal 31.40%.
Overall pass percentage in 10th class might have improved by over 11% compared to 2018 results. However, pass percentage in many districts including Dumka, Sahebganj and Gumla has not been satisfactory.
Singh said, after introduction of month-wise model question papers, overall results in intermediate science or matriculation would improve. “Solving model question papers at regular intervals would help students to be familiar with types of questions asked in the examinations, which would help them to obtain good marks,” he said.
