The project describes various limitations of current system methods and discusses possible solutions that can improve online examination system and makes it applicable to an even broader range of institutions. This project was carried out using tools like php to develop the front end and mysql for the back end of the software-online examination system.

For teachers, it would give flexibility to fit their needs and to the students there will be no loss in time for the need of using extra thing like paper, pen etc. This system also focuses on how to provide a secure environment for Online Examination.
In this study, Yabatech has been chosen as the case study. Examination in Yabatech is conduct manually. During examination students always looking for center, due to this some student who are not familiarize with the school infrastructure miss the examination. Every morning before the examination commence, the school will paste each examination center on the notice board.
1.1 STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM

· Delay in releasing of result.
· Examination malpractice.
· Changing of result.
· Students meeting lecturer for help.
· Insufficient question paper and answer sheet in the examination hall.
1.2 PURPOSE OF THE STUDY
The purpose of this system is to eradicate the manual operation and to reduce the costs associated with conducting examination in YABATECH, and to achieve total automation of examination process, to provide online facility examination for YABATECH.
1.3 OBJECTIVE OF THE STUDY
Online examination system will improves the conduct of examination in Yaba College of Technology. The objective of this system includes:
● To save the time of examination section and minimize the use of manpower.
● To store the logs of candidates and their marks and backup for future use.
● To reduce paper work.
● To reduce the hectic job of assessing the answers given by the candidates.
● To conduct examination in an efficient manner and reduce the tedious paper work.

1.6 RESEARCH METHODOLOGY
This research is all about web based software development for academic institution system. With this, software development methodology needs to be adopted in the research. General standard software development approach includes the following:
● Data collections
● Data analysis
● System design
● System coding
● System testing
The data methodology approach adopted for the data collection of this system is interview. During the interview process both staff and students were interview in order to know the challenges they faced from the existing examination system. The technique adopted for the data analysis is the descriptive statistical methodology. Flow chart is used to break the system design in to module in order to comprehend what the structure of this software will look like. In my system coding, programming language that support the operation of the develop system was used. PHP is the preferred programming language used for the realization of this software because of the dynamic features of the language. PHP MYSQL is a web based programming language that supports the features of the software. Microsoft structure query language is used for the data manipulation of the software. Microsoft structure query language is database application software. In the system testing, in order to ascertain the operation of the software, module testing was used. This system was implemented in YABATECH.
