The study adopted a descriptive research design. The population for the study include all the students in Ondo State Universities, secondary school teachers of Ondo State, staff of examination bodies and ministry of education officials in Ondo State. Two hundred (200) respondents were randomly selected to participate in the study and they were stratified according to their various groups. Data were collected through a self-developed questionnaire on the subject matter. Finding revealed that when parents play their parts in guiding their children in terms of choosing a career of their choice, inculcating good moral values in them, encouraging them to work harder and providing necessary textbooks needed for learning, when examination officials’ salaries and other remunerations are paid regularly, all this would restrain examination mal-practices in Ondo State. The following recommendations were made from the findings; parents and guardians should be encouraged to guide their wards in choosing a career of their choice, provide necessary textbooks, and giving their wards moral upbringing, encouraging them to work harder and government on its own should review and pay teachers salary on time.
