JAC Class 12 Result 2024 Declared: The class 12 results of the science, commerce, and arts stream examination conducted by the Jharkhand Academic Council (JAC) were declared on Tuesday with 85.48 percent of students clearing the test.

JAC chairman Anil Mahto declared the results in the presence of state school education and literacy department secretary Uma Shankar Singh.

Mahto said that 72.70 percent of students in science, 90.60 percent in commerce, and the highest 93.16 percent of students in arts passed the examination.

Over 3.44 students were enrolled for the examinations, which were held in February this year. More than 2.98 lakh students cleared the examinations.

Sneha, a student of Ursline Inter College Ranchi, emerged as state topper in science stream by scoring 491 marks out of 500, while Pratibha Saha, student of Urline Inter College Ranchi, ranked first in state in commerce stream with 474 marks out of 500. In the arts stream, Zeenat Parween from Government Plus-2 High School, Kanke, emerged state topper by obtaining 472 marks out of 500.
The results, however, dropped by around three percent compared to the previous year. In 2023, overall results in all three streams were 88.67 percent in 2023.

Girls have outshone in two streams—arts and commerce, while boys outperformed girls by a negligible margin in the science stream. Girls' pass percentages in Arts and Commerce were at 94.22 percent and 93.46 percent respectively compared to boys whose pass percentages were at 91.68 percent and 88.40 percent respectively.

In the Science stream, 72.72 percent of boys passed the examination compared to 72.67 percent of girls.

"In the Science stream, the results of physics and chemistry were not satisfactory. We need to work in these subjects to improve the results in the future," Singh said.

Speaking about the overall decline in results, he said that when the pattern changes, it also reflects in results. "A slight three per cent results dropped compared to the previous year, as the examinations were not taken in OMR sheets this time," he said.
