The study investigated the rate, implications and possible solutions to examination malpractices among science students of Federal College of Education, Abeokuta. Four research questions were raised and served as guide to the study. Stratified and simple random sampling technique were used to select 10 students each from 100 to 300 level in seven (7) departments of the School of Science, to make a total of two hundred and ten (210) respondents. A self constructed and validated questionnaire was used to collect data for the study while simple percentage and chi-square were used for data analysis. The findings showed that majority of the respondents (90%) of the respondents) agreed that inadequate preparation of students lead to examination malpractice. The research findings also showed that lack of conducive examination halls encourage examination malpractices. (86.7% of the students); with poor study techniques, poor moral training, 78.1% of student agreed that laziness on the part of students is a major cause of examination malpractices, etc, identified as some of the causes of the immoral act. Also, regular campaign against examination practice, development of effective study methods and not cramming are some of the identified measures that could be adopted to reduce the rate of examination malpractices among the students. The researchers recommended among others, the building of a good foundation of self discipline among students right from their respective homes as the task of curbing fraudulent practices in our educational system should not be left to the institutions management, government and examination bodies alone.
