Despite everything you said it still doesn't make sense.
You started the test at 13:00, no matter where in the world you are.
You WOULD have started at 15:00 were you taking the test at your current vacation location, but you weren't. You were at a location with a time zone where you started at 13:00 and nothing you will ever do can change that (unless you invent a time machine).
Saying you started at 15:00 at that location is just misleading!

You don't correct for inflation either, do you?
I paid €3,10 for that ice cream back in 1995.
No, I paid f0,50 (or something like that).
It's nice to know that same ice cream would cost me €3,10 now, but back in the day I paid f0,50 and not €3,10.

So let us start a worldwide movement to abandon time zones and use UTC everywhere!
I could live with that, but I live in UTC + 1, so it won't really affect my day.
Other people, however, suddenly have to live their lived from 22:00 to 16:00 or some such Unsure | :~
