You will definitely have a passport with the listed documents. This is enough to have a passport for any citizens of India. Don't worry and just submit the online form and then with the original documents meet the authorities in the stipulated date. I am sure they will provide you with the Passport but one thing is there you need to have a Birth Certificate as in your case the Admit card is not there with you as you attained only Class VIII. So just proceed with your municipality for a birth certificate as that will be quite helpful. Those who are born before 1989 can have a affidavit from a notary for his date of birth and can proceed to make a passport.

Yes, the documents you mentioned are enough for applying for a fresh passport. As mainly you need to furnish your documents as proof of your date of birth, residence address wherein you have stayed for more than a year and other documents mentioned by you. You need necessarily hold a 10th certificate for obtaining an Indian passport
