Dangers and Consequences of Examination Malpractice

Examination malpractice is a social evil that can damage society to the extent of possibly leading to a failed state. It has very serious economic, political and social consequences. In the last ten years alone, the West African Examination Council (WAEC) had to cancel the results of 814,699 candidates in its May/June Examination (Aminu, 2006). Considering the cost of buying examination forms alone, this amount to a waste of about 2.5 billion naira. Apart from direct wastage of money, there is also wastage in the form of opportunity cost to the nation and society.
    Examination malpractice renders the goals of education invalid. The actualization of the goals of education will continue to be a mirage if the scourge of examination malpractice is not eradicated from the system. The country will end up producing graduates who lack the knowledge, skill, and competence to exploit the resources of the nation. Besides, the graduates will lack the right type of values and attitude needed for survival in a globalized economy.

    Malpractice leads to irreversible loss of credibility. A country that becomes noted for examination malpractice losses international credibility. The implication is that documents emanating from such country will be treated with suspicion. Consequently, certificates awarded by such country's educational institutions are disbelieved. Such country's educational institutions are as good as dead as far as international cooperation in education is concerned.
    The fight against corruption cannot succeed if examination malpractice continues to be endemic in the educational system. As leaders of tomorrow who have gone through a school system characterized by academic fraud and dishonesty, the youths of the country will sow and nurture this fraudulent behaviour in any organization they find themselves. They will be destined to a life of crime, fraud and corrupt practices. The consequences of examination malpractice are grave as elaborated above. What is the way out of this educational quagmire?
