Examination malpractice is a serious problem that has bedeviled the education system in Nigeria. It has become the order of the day that people no longer frown at it. It lowers educational standard and nullifies well meaning efforts of educators towards the achievement of  standard education. The most distorting and sustaining factors of examination malpractice in our schools are the actions of lecturers ( teachers) who are supposed to be role models, cases abound where examination grades and live questions papers are exchanged for sex and peanuts.

Forms of examination malpractice

Students should be well taught on the principles of hardwork and academic excellence as the bedrock for proper education and not seeking success through other means like malpractice it will only damage them in future. More so, government and other educational bodies should be on guard to dismiss and prosecute any teacher or lecturer involved in such acts

Three things must be looked into

1.education system must be balanced and checked, conducive learning environment, reward/purnishment, adequate learning equipment

2. Government needs to be checked and balance.

3. Family ( based on parent or ward and the mentality of the envireonment student is living)

The best way to really improve the standard of examination in our educational system would be the introduction of the computer based platform and my reason for saying this is because exams done with this platform would be marked by the system which would absolutely be perfect if the scores are programmed correctly and also this system would help reshuffling of questions thereby making it impossible for two students to have the same question on the same number and this would further improve the level of self reliance amongst students

Examination malpractices cannot stop unless the lecturers tried to give the students throttle real score. The reason for this is from what I have seen

Imagine a lecturer telling his students thst, he graduated with first class but he'll never guarantee anyone of them first class. Ehn just imagine.

Students carrying course for 11yrs because of just 1 mark to pass on..for example 39, just one mark...

Most reason why students indulge in examination malpractice is because of the short period of time given for preparation of exams. And teachers, not making their students understand. So by rectifying this, exam malpractice can be curbed

You can't just wake up and say you want to stop examination malpractice in school but you can only try to stop it by

1. Let parents encourage their children even if they fail. Most students cheat no just because they want to pass but because of what their parents will do to them or what people will say about then your child failing in school doesn't mean that he/she has failed in life

I think examination malpractice is a big shame to our educational system and the nation at large. To curb this ugly menace, parents must raised their children in a proper godly manner, and students on the other hand must take their study serious by reading their books.

In Nigeria, the last two decades have witnessed an alarming rate of increase in incidents of examination misconduct especially at secondary school level. Evidences abound of increasing incidents of examination malpractice by students, teachers and parents.Every examination season witnesses the emergence of new and ingenious ways of cheating. This paper addresses the problem of examination malpractice in secondary schools in Nigeria, what sustains it, the consequences of examination malpractice and the ways through which examination malpractice could be curbed in order to give credibility to the examination process in the country.

Empowerment of Teachers:Teachers cannot provide experience and activities that guide students’ progress towards understanding of ideas if they themselves do not know what these ideas are; neither can they provide experiences that challenge students understanding if they themselves share the same misunderstanding

Improved Funding of the Education Sector:The education sector in Nigeria is grossly under funded. The inadequate funding of the public school system is thecause of other problems that have undermined quality in the sector. Nigeria’s funding efforts of education is low, and its budgetary priority for the education sector is even lower.this should be improve on to increase educational standard and qualified graduates.. My personal view

The best way to curb examination malpractice in schools is to start at its roots. The teachers themselves need to be stopped from doing things that would trigger the students to cheat in exams. Most times the teachers themselves encourage their students to conduct exam malpractice.

It starts from individual, when I was undergraduate I vowed to myself that I will never do such a thing and it was very easy for me as determined. If a lecturer asked five questions and a to answer three out of that three if I can only attend to two of them am OK so Nigeria there are some issues that we need to check ourselves and not out parents or leaders. So if u can determine that this is what I want and the one I don't want

In terms of malpractice during marking,        The teachers/lecturers should be disciplined.

The students shouldn't be allowed to write their name (they can write something to identify them), so that the marker won't know who he or she is marking for to avoid leniency for some and marking wrongly for some.

Marking guide should be followed appropriately

As for malpractice in the examination hall,

Students should be taught well in classroom

Students shouldn't be scared by the lecturers

Students should be given enough time

Students who over score should be made to defend their points

And strict majors and implementation should be enforce on anyone or lecturers caught endulging in such act

Parents need to take it upon themselves to ensure that their children and wards are not only getting the best tutoring but are also studying hard for any upcoming examinations, if possible they can also assist to teach their children if they have the required skillset. This would help to boost the confidence of the children and also make examination malpractice less attractive.
