Jharkhand Academic Council (JAC),has been working on initiatives to increase the overall pass percentage in the State Board examinations. JAC has introduced the concept of model test paper series, multipurpose examination halls.
“For the first time we had uploaded the model test paper series of all core subjects on the official website of JAC. Beginning with class 8, the model test papers are available up to standard 12. Within a few days, another set of model test papers for class 11 will be uploaded on the council’s website,” said an official.
“The Council has come up with the proposal of establishing five multipurpose examination halls at all the commissionaires. With all state-of-the-art facilities, the multipurpose halls will be utilised for conducting training sessions for the teachers and scrutinizing answer scripts. The plan had recently received the consent of finance committee of the council,” he added.
The council has taken some positive steps to improve the results. Teachers’ workshop on how to make studies interesting, mock test for science, model questions which have been introduced in the last academic session will be more in frequency this year. The JAC results in intermediate for the past 15 years have been poor especially science which have been around 30-40 per cent.
This year, students will get more scope of improving themselves. Each subject will have four phase examination in mock tests. This will make students shed the fear of examination. Mock tests will also be introduced in arts and commerce.
