Top 3 Downsides of the New Executive Assessment vs. GMAT

Some candidates are very pleased to know they have an alternative to the GMAT and GRE now, with the introduction of the new Executive Assessment, which has been designed by GMAC in consultation with top MBA programs. The exam is reportedly less difficult, easier to prepare for and takes less time to complete.

As GMAC states on its website, “You are a seasoned professional with numerous years of experience under your belt. You are busy juggling the demands of work and family. You are interested in taking an assessment that evaluates your real-world skills. But, you don’t have months to study for an assessment prior to entering an EMBA program. At the same time, you want to be prepared for the program and be placed with other high-caliber, experienced cohort members. GMAC [has]… used performance profiles of hundreds of executives to ensure the assessment would be relevant, short, and provide an accurate snapshot of your skills.”

GMAC goes on to advise that the best way to prepare for this exam is to “familiarize yourself with question formats and test center rules….The Executive Assessment was specifically designed to evaluate the skills you have already acquired during your career. Extensive preparation is not necessary, but we do strongly suggest that you review the question formats and practice” using sample questions.

What are the downsides of this new exam? As of the date of posting of this blog, these are the downsides:

1. Reporting. Unlike with the GMAT, when you take the exam, it must be reported to a school. With the GMAT, you can choose not to name a school and therefore no school will see the score unless you have it sent to them.
2. Cancelling. Unlike the GMAT, you cannot cancel your score. With recent changes in the GMAT rules, you are now able to take the test, view your score and cancel it if you don’t like it, so that it never shows on a formal report. The Executive Assessment has no such option.
3. Number of Tries. Unlike the GMAT, you can only take the Executive Assessment twice. You can take the GMAT five times in each 12-month period.

Among the benefits of the Executive Assessment that GMAT does not offer: you can take the exam as early as 24 hours after registering, and if you don’t like your score, you can re-take the exam 24 hours after you complete your first attempt (although you only get two tries total!).

Overall, the Executive Assessment is a great alternative for the busy professional who does not have ample time to set aside to prepare for the rigorous GMAT or GRE exams.
