Malay Ray GDPI Classes

In the relentless pursuit of securing admissions to IIMs, the Personal Interview (PI) round is critical -- a make-or-break point that often determines the trajectory of a candidate's academic journey. It is well known that even CAT 99.5% might not guarantee a coveted spot in top IIMs if candidates falter in this crucial round. Amidst this backdrop emerges Malay Ray, Malay Sir to his students who revere him, and his unique GDPI coaching course. Just in 2023 final admissions alone, as many as 30 of his students got into IIM Ahmedabad, another 42 in IIM Bangalore, and 60 in IIM Calcutta! He has achieved similar results for last 10 years

But not much is known about Malay Ray… Unlike mega coaching brands and Edtech, who advertise aggressively in TV and Press, Ray doesn’t advertise his course, and relies on the old fashioned “word-of-mouth”. While aspirants can easily google course material of most coaching institutions, virtually no information exists on how Malay Ray actually conducts his course. His rudimentary website doesn’t even mention the price or course content of his course.

Who is Malay Ray Sir?
First things first! So, who is Malay Sir. Is he part of a coaching company or is he a faculty at any B-school? Turns out, he currently holds a top management position in a leading global insurance company and has over 25 years of corporate experience at top management levels in multinationals. He is an engineer and IIM Ahmedabad alumnus and currently lives in South-East Delhi.

Malay Sir also told MBAUniverse.com that is not associated with any coaching companies, although some of the leading ones have approached him many times. Currently he has taken a short break from his corporate career to focus on GDPI coaching. 

What is Malay Ray GDPI Classes?
Next, we asked Malay Sir how he got into GDPI coaching? Well, Malay Ray's GDPI classes were accidentally initiated in 1998, and the saga has continued for last 25 years. Malay Ray told MBAUniverse.com, "I started in 1998 with a request from a few IIT Delhi boys to help them in CAT. We got an excellent result with half of them getting admitted to IIMA, and that started the journey."

How is Malay Sir’s Success Rate
When MBAUniverse.com asked Malay Ray about the results/final admits achieved by his students, he smiled and humbly said, “In 2023, the final admissions of my students were: 30 in IIM Ahmedabad, 42 in IIM Bangalore, 60 in IIM Calcutta, 85 in IIM Lucknow, 33 in FMS Delhi, to name a few.”

Digging deeper, MBAUniverse.com asked how many students does he enroll, that lead to these number, Malay Sir said, “I enroll only about 200 students every year. I want to make sure I give my very best to every student who enrolls with me!”

Achieving 130+ Final Admissions in IIMA, B, C, from 200 students is a great achievement, we thought! 

So, how do so many of his students get into IIM A, B, C!
The remarkable success of Malay Ray's students in securing admissions to top-tier B-schools is attributed to his unique approach. Malay Sir emphasizes that he does not merely prepare students for interviews but shapes them into better individuals, making interview clearance a natural outcome. Malay Ray said, "I do not prepare my students for personal interviews for IIMs. I shape them to be better individuals. Interview clearance then becomes automatic."

Sharing course details, Abhinav Aggarwal, one of his past students, said, "Malay Sir has an absolutely brilliant way of teaching... He teaches you everything from politics to India to World affairs to Philosophy to Economics to History to General Awareness. In short, he prepares the candidate not only for GD-PI of IIMs but for his life ahead.”

Satisfied & Grateful Students
Student satisfaction comes first for Malay Sir. He says, “Almost all my students are referred to me by my ex-students. More than the number, my focus is always on transforming lives.”

Student response to Malays Sir’s efforts is equally positive. Shivani Agarwal, a student of Ray Sir who got the Gold Medal at IIM Ahmedabad in 2023, conveyed her gratitude, saying, "Two years back after looking at my notes you had said I'll get a gold medal at IIMA. I am happy to say that I graduated IIMA with a Rank 1. The first girl to get a medal this century since 2000. Just wanted to thank you for having faith in me; couldn’t have done without you!”

That’s touching… isn’t it!
