    If an exam is 1 hour, you will get 3 hours extra. If an exam is 1 hour 30 minutes, you will have negative 15 minutes to finish it.

    150% * 60min = 90min
    So 1h30 for a 1h exam (30min extra)

    150% * 90min = 135min
    So 2h15 for a 1h30 exam (45min extra)

    50% extra means 150% of the original value (i.e. 100%, the original value, plus 50% extra)

    Half as much time again. Hope it is not a Maths exam.

    1 hour = 30 mins extra. Total time 1hr 30 mins.
    1 hour and 30 mins = 45 mins extra. Total time 2 hours 15 mins.

    I don't think it matters. If this Year 3 Maths is beyond you then no amount of extra time is going to be much use, whatever the subject.
