The online tests are structured very closely to the regular exams.
GMAC has launched the Executive Assessment Online, an online and remote version of the Executive Assessment developed to support candidates and schools during the disruption to test centre-based delivery during the Covid-19 pandemic.
The Executive Assessment is an exam used in EMBA admission and is designed specifically for busy, experienced professionals.
The announcement comes several weeks after the launch of the GMAT Online exam, an interim at-home alternative to the test centre GMAT exam.
Executive Assessment Online
The Executive Assessment Online has the same structure as the exam offered at test centres. The Executive Assessment Online presents test takers with 40 questions across three 30-minute sections in the following order: Integrated Reasoning (12 questions), Verbal Reasoning (14 questions), and Quantitative Reasoning (14 questions).
Scoring is also unchanged. The total scale ranges from 100 to 200, and the scale for each section of the assessment is 0 to 20. All three sections are equally weighted in determining your total.
Results from the online test are valid for five years.
Appointment times are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Appointment dates are available beginning 5 May, 2020 until 30 June, 2020. More appointment dates may be added if needed, GMAC said.
The exam is not available in mainland China, Cuba, Iran, North Korea, Sudan and Slovenia due to regulatory and local data privacy rules.
The Executive Assessment Online registration is USD 350 and includes free unlimited reschedules and score sending.
You can reschedule or cancel your appointment up to 24 hours before your scheduled assessment time. There is a USD 100 cancellation fee if you choose to cancel your appointment. No appointment changes can be made within 24 hours of a scheduled appointment time.
At this time, the Executive Assessment Online can only be taken once. Currently, score cancellations and retakes will not be available, with the exception of verified technical issues.
Test takers have been able to take GMAT Online since 20 April, 2020. The at-home exam is similar in structure to the GMAT exam delivered in test centres, and has been adapted for near-term access on an online testing platform. The exam has the same number of items and time for completion across the Quant, Verbal and IR sections (the AWA section is not included). Altogether, the GMAT Online exam will take approximately three hours to complete – two hours and 45 minutes for the exam and 15 minutes for the online proctor check-in process.
The GMAT Online costs USD 200 and includes five score reports for candidates to send to their select schools. Candidates will have an opportunity to choose their schools before or after their exam.
The interim exam is available in all markets globally except for mainland China, Cuba, Iran, North Korea, Sudan and Slovenia due to regulatory and data privacy rules.
The check-in and security protocols are designed to account for and accommodate the online delivery model and remote human supervisors will be used to maintain the test integrity.
