Jamshedpur, June 7 : Science proved to be a shocker in Kolhan as only 41.28 per cent pass percent was scored by East Singhbhum in the Jharkhand Academic Council (JAC) intermediate exam, the result of which was announced on Thursday.
West Singhbhum district scored 47.24 pass percentage as compared to 42.63 per cent in Seraikela-Kharswan. Commerce results however were satisfactory with East Singhbhum scoring 70.34 per cent followed by West Singhbhum with 69.44 per cent and Seraikela-Kharswan with 59.80 per cent.
�We are not at all happy with the performances of our students in science though are teachers had put in lots of efforts but the outcome in not well.
Our students have not been able in make into the topper�s list of the State perhaps for the first time,� said a principal requesting anonymity It may be mentioned that there are only 37 teachers in 145 high schools in the East Singhbhum district. Expressing concerns over lack of teachers, DEO East Singhbhum R.K.P. Singh said that he students are not guided properly due to lack of teachers. He said that degree colleges have showcased their worst performance in science.
“As far as the information received whatever pass percentage we have secured is because of schools like Kasturba Gandhi Balika Vidyalaya and other schools where there are teachers. The degree and independent inter colleges have got 20 per cent pass percentage,” said Singh. He said that commerce results were better but science is a subject of concepts. The East Singhbhum district has decided to analyse the results now.
“We are yet to anaylise the result but as per the initial nderstanding the performance in science is not satisfactory and we need to improve it,” said Singh. West Singhbhum DEO Pradeep Choubey said that the results are satisfactory because students and the district made it with whatever resources were available. Out of the sanctioned 396 posts in 36 schools, the district has managed with 63 teachers.
Meanwhile the poor performance of the tudents in intermediate examinations especially in science conducted by Jharkhand Academic Council has forced the city colleges to call meetings to review the performances and ponder over the dull show by the students. Sources also informed that colleges like JKS College, and Graduate School College for Women have also called meetings to review the performance of the students.
