Even though on surface the Executive Assessment exam looks like a mini version of GMAT, it is quite different than the GMAT. All the sections and type of question you have on GMAT also feature on the Executive Assessment exam. The test isn’t simply a short-hand version of the GMAT and there are many evident differences between the two exams as is clear in the sample papers released by GMAC.

The total duration of the exam is 90 minutes and it consists of three sections, each of 30 minutes. Following table includes the section-wise topics covered in the EA exam:


Number of questions



Integrated Reasoning


  • Graphics Interpretation
  • Two-Part Analysis
  • Table Analysis
  • Multi-Source Reasoning

0 to 20



  • Reading Comprehension
  • Critical Reasoning
  • Sentence Correction

0 to 20



  • Problem Solving
  • Data Sufficiency

0 to 20




100 to 200

Since our knowledge currently depends only on the released sample question papers, it is hard to draw any certain conclusions, but certain things about the section syllabus. Quant section has no geometry questions, or functions, quadratic equations, combinatorics, overlapping sets, and probability questions either.

There is no guarantee that any of the missing questions will never appear on the exam. Most probably GMAC will be soon releasing additional guidelines related to the syllabus and content structure of Executive Assessment exam.
