For reference: Here are the advertisement, the FAQ, and the flyer (short version of the advertisement) about the test and the doctoral scholarship scheme 2021. (Caveat: No attempt has been made to update these documents after the test was indefinitely postponed in April, so some of the information in them is outdated.)
