JAC 12th Syllabus 2022 for English 

The following is the JAC 12th English Syllabus 2022 for candidates to refer to:


Candidates are expected to have acquired a reasonable degree of language proficiency in English by the time they come to Class XI, and the course will aim, essentially, to promote higher-order language skills. 

  • Syllabus for Secondary and Higher Secondary Levels- For a large number of candidates, the higher secondary stage will be a preparation for the university, where a fairly high degree of proficiency in English may be required. But for another large group, the higher secondary stage may be a preparation for entry into the world of work. 

  • Core courses should cater to both groups by promoting the language skills required for academic study as well as the language skills required for the workplace.


The course is intended to give candidates a high level of competence in English with an emphasis on the study of literary texts and will provide extensive exposure to a variety of rich texts of world literature as well as to Indian writings in English, including classics, and develop sensitivity to the creative and imaginative uses of English and give them a taste for reading with delight and discernment.

  • The course will be pitched at a level which the candidates may find challenging. The course is primarily designed to equip the candidates to pursue higher studies in English literature and the English language at the college level and prepare candidates to become teachers of English.


Candidates opting for the Elective Course will be introduced to the study of the basics of English grammar and phonology. It is recommended that a book based on a suitable pedagogical model that presents the basics of functional grammar and the bare essentials of the phonology of English be used.

  • The basic concepts in the phonology of English will include the sounds of English, the syllable stress, strong and weak forms, and intonation. The course will help the candidates consult a pronouncing dictionary when required.

  • Methods and Techniques: The techniques used for teaching should promote habits of self-learning and reduce dependence on the teacher. The multi-skill, learner-centered, activity-based approach already recommended for the previous stages of education is still in place, though it will be used in such a way that silent reading of prescribed/selected texts for comprehension will receive greater focus as one of the activities.

  • Learners will be trained to read independently and intelligently, interacting actively with texts and other reference materials (dictionary, thesaurus, encyclopedia, etc.) where necessary. Some pre-reading activities will generally be required, and course books should suggest those. The reading of texts should be followed by post-reading activities. It is important to remember that every text can generate different readings.

  • Candidates should be encouraged to interpret texts in different ways, present their views of critics on a literary text and express their reactions to them. Some projects may be assigned to candidates from time to time. For instance, candidates may be asked to put together a few literary pieces on a given theme from English as well as regional literature.

Tips for Jharkhand 12th Candidates 2022

Below are some tips for candidates while preparing for the JAC 12th board exam 2022:

  • Choose the right time to study and the right place to study: Every candidate's comfort zone depends on themselves. Hence, the candidate should find a study space, study regularly, and should stick with it. A comfortable and distraction-free study is a must.

  • Everyday study: Candidates need to make regular studying a habit. Learning every day helps you to understand things easily. It also helps to reduce last-minute stress cramming.

  • Increased study time during exams: Candidates need to discover their learning style. Every person has a type of learning.

  • Review and revise: Reviewing and revising at least once a week is advantageous for all candidates to score good marks. Frequent revision helps each candidate to catch all concepts.

  • Ask for help: Do not hesitate to ask if you're stuck on something. Candidates should talk to their guides and teachers about the things they don't understand.
