The Jharkhand Academic Council (JAC) on Thursday announced the results for Class 12 (Arts stream), 20 days after the results for Class 12 (science and commerce streams) were announced. The delay was due to the strike by the contractual employees of the JAC, who were demanding regularisation.

Despite the delay, however, the JAC claimed that the students would not face problems in getting admissions in colleges as there was still time. The Arts stream result, like the other two streams, also showed a dip this year. As against 81.36 per cent last year, the pass percentage this year was 74.19 per cent. The girls had a better pass percentage of 76.32 per cent, as compared to boys, who had a pass percentage of 71.33 per cent.

From a low of 58.74 per cent in 2011, the results improved to a high of 83.16 per cent in 2014 before registering a decline again. While in 2015, it dipped by nearly two per cent, this year it went down by 7.17 per cent.

The results for Class 12 science and commerce, as well as Class 10, declared earlier, too had showed dip to the tune of five to seven per cent across categories. Among the toppers were girls from Ursuline College, Ranchi, and Ranchi Women’s College, besides girls from Kasturba Gandhi Balika Vidyalayas in Ghaghra (Gumla) and Chakradharpur (Jamshedpur). The highest marks were scored by Tamanna Mahato from Ursuline College scoring 397 out of 500 (79.4 per cent).

Secretary (JAC) Mohan Chand Mukim attributed the low marks to strict vigilance and checking. On the delay, Mukim said: “No students will face problems in getting admission. There was a delay due to the long-running strike of contractual employees. But, still we managed to bring it out in time.”
