With the State Government giving its consent for holding practical examinations of matriculation and intermediate students, the Jharkhand Academic Council (JAC) has started preparations. The JAC in connection has issued guidelines. Those candidates whose practical examinations are pending there examination will be held by July 26.
JAC has asked school-colleges to upload the marks of practical examination online from July 23 to 26 on JAC’s website www.jac.jharkhand.gov.in. Guidelines in this regard are available on JAC’s website. JAC chairman Arvind Prasad Singh said, “The matriculation and intermediate examination will be held by July 26 and in this connection the school examination board has issued necessary guidelines.

Once the results are submitted to JAC the next step will be preparing the results. As per JAC results criteria, Class 10 students will be assessed based on their performance in class 9 finals while for the class 12 students the evaluation will be based on the marks scored by them in Class 11. Out of the total marks, 80 per cent weightage will be given to theory exams and 20 per cent will be given to practicals. Subjects that do not include practical exams will be evaluated using internal assessment marks.
The Jharkhand Academic Council (JAC), Ranchi had announced to declare the class 10 and class 12 board exam results on July 20, but the results got delayed due to pending practical marks. Now, the students would have to wait a little longer as the Jharkhand Board is planning to announce their results in the last week of July.
As per sources, the Jharkhand Board is expected to release the results of 10th and 12th class by July 30. Once declared, the result will also be available at official websites. This year, there are several firsts for the Jharkhand Board. Firstly the result will be declared based on internal assessment.
In another first JAC will not release the merit list nor will the list of toppers be announced.
JAC will only release the data of students who progressed to the next class and those who failed. The results will be graded into first, second, and third divisions.
More than 4.31 lakh students were expected to appear for the matric examinations, while over 3.32 lakh students were likely to write intermediate examinations this year.
