How many words is a PTE repeat sentence?

Between 5 to 16 words.

The number of words in a Repeat Sentence question is from 5 words as in ‘Robots are common in industry’ to 16 words as in ‘Course participants report that interest in the subject was their main reason for choosing the course.’

PTE candidates will usually have between 10-12 RS questions in their PTE test. These questions can be divided into 3 categories of easy, medium and difficult.  

Each PTE candidate will get an equal number of the three levels of difficulty in their test. However, the order of getting the questions is random.

In my online classes, I teach a method through which students can easily handle even the longest Repeat Sentence questions in their PTE test. For further information, please visit my website at
