Abstract: Examination as generally observed provoke anxiety in students. Anxiety could either be positive or negetive. The anxiety generated in students due to examination is a reflection of the effect of failure or otherwise in public examinations at the end of prescribed courses of study and this depends on how prepared such students are. In this paper, the issues of examination malpractice form the background of discussions. The paper reports the trends of examination malpractice and assesses the Act 33 of 1999 and its implications on examination malpractice. Relevant suggestions relating to implementation of the Act were made. These include strict application of the prescribed penalties on offenders by creating the enabling environment for the full implementation of the act as well as educating the various stakeholders on its essence in order to reduce such offences.
