French B1 exam near Basel? (In France?)

Does anyone know where I can take the French B1 exam in France, as close to Basel as possible? The exam costs a hefty CHF280- on the Swiss side of the border, and between EUR60-80 if you take it in France. Trouble is, I can't seem to find any test centers near Basel (eg, Mulhouse, Altkirch, etc...)

Re: French B1 exam near Basel? (In France?)

I have had friends take it in Lyon and Annecy, but nowhere up by Basel. Maybe check Besanšon or Dijon? It's much cheaper to take the test in France, as you said. Also, you can take both the oral and the written on the same day and, rumor has it, that the instructors are much more lenient with the oral part than they are in Switzerland.

Thanks for the pointers -- I might try to make a day trip someplace if I can do both sections on the same day. I'm not too worried about passing the exam (I'd estimate that my French is borderline B2/C1). I just need a proficiency certificate at B1 level.
