You can't install Exchange 2013 on Essential edition. See requirements:

It could be installed on separate server:

Best way to do this is to buy a SINGLE COPY of Server 2012 Standard, install Hyper-V, then use downgrade rights and install Essentials 2012 in one VM and then Server 2012 in another and add Exchange 2013 to that VM.  NOTE: YOU NEED to buy Exchange and Windows CALs if you are going to use Exchange.
