It depends what you mean. If the exam has to be halted for a fire alarm and evacuation then the time the exam is halted does not count so the exam will end later than originally planned but lasts the same length of time. The invigilator can't decide that the classroom next door was really noisy so you can have 5 extra minutes as compensation.

Basically, there was another exam going on during the my exam and they decided to give 5 minutes extra to make up for the interruption.

5 minutes is generous

That's malpractice.

Do you think the exam board will take this into account when marking it, or does the invigilator have the power to do this?

It is specifically not allowed and would count as centre malpractice if reported.
