An estimated 5,56,352 students have been searching online for jac.nic.in 8th class result since today afternoon. The official website of Jharkhand Academic Council is down, leaving students in a bit of a fix about result availability. It was reported earlier today in few print newspapers that students can check Jharkhand 8th Class Result 2018-2019 from 10 Apr 2019, 3 PM.
Students are trying to get through to the official website. With it not working, many are falling back upon social media chatter, relying on each other to know what is happening. Insofar there is no official word on date and time of availability of Jharkhand’s Class 8 Exam Result 2019.
Students will get result in form of grades. They will get marks out of 20 in each paper, and the marks will be converted to grades. The focus of these exams is to encourage students towards learning and building a healthy competitive spirit, rather than bringing them in a conventional marks-over-matter system.
The exam was held on 11 Feb 2019 from 9:45 AM to 1 PM. Students were issued admit cards on 5 Feb 2019. The education offices of district level were provided with question papers, OMR answer sheets, attendance sheets on 8 Feb 2019.
20-20 Marks papers were set for class 8th students of the state. This was the first time for the young students of Jharkhand to take OMR based tests.
It was reported that in absence of exact number of class 8th students, the Jharkhand Academic Council took positive measures to ensure that there is no shortage of question papers or admit cards. Extra blank admit cards were kept and so were enough question papers. Last year, 5.33 lakh students were enrolled in class 8th in the state.
There were three diverse sets of question papers with 50, 20, 10 units. The District Education Officers were responsible for distribution of the same to schools as per number of students by 8 Feb 2019.
Besides JAC, RBSE (Rajasthan), and JKBOSE (Jammu and Kashmir) also conduct examinations for class 8 students.
