Hello student,

Top BPE colleges in Kerala are

1. Mahatma Gandhi University

2.St Joseph's Academy of Higher Education and Research

Best of both can be not well defined as both colleges are well reputed and can fulfil all your above stated demands.  You can go with the one in which you secured a good rank as both are something tough to achieve.

Thank you!

Mahaveer Reddy Student Expert 11th Sep, 2019

Dear aspirant,

Unsourced material might be tested and evacuated. The State Council of Educational Research and Training (SCERT), Kerala is a leading body of school instruction in India, led by the administration of the province of Kerala, India. The board readies the schedule for schools associated with it.

The State Council of Educational Research and Training (SCERT), Kerala is a leading body of school instruction in India, directed by the administration of the territory of Kerala, India. The board readies the schedule for schools associated with it. Their fundamental scholastic spotlight is on restorative consideration, designing and telemarketing.

The CBSE schedule is relatively harder than the state prospectus. ... Top national level placement tests like JEE and NEET depend on the educational program of CBSE as it were. Thus, the up-and-comers, who finished their instruction in the CBSE prospectus, have a superior shot of prevailing in these assessments.

Good Luck
