Default I've got a question...

... that most you may find silly, but I was wondering... during the exam, if you finish a block before the time expires, are those minutes added to the break time or they're just gone?

i think they are added to break time.....but, they never warn you about the time...you should be aware of how much time you are using for each block...good luck

They are added to your break time.The rest of the blocks will have the same time...You can't add the time you saved in one block to another block.

Someone will correct me if I am wrong.
