Please correct this if it is grammatically wrong also let me know if any better advance level statement can be used.
1) I was writing my exam when when you were trying to reach me.
2) My exam just got over (refering to time)
3) I just came out of the exam hall
4)I couldn't complete my 11 marks paper as the examiner didn't give me the answersheet.
5) I can't give you the paper in the last five minutes of exam

1) I was writing my exam when when you were trying to reach me. I was doing my exam/I was in an exam...

2) My exam just got over (refering to time) My exam just finished.

3) I just came out of the exam hall. Fine.

4)I couldn't complete [STRIKE]my[/STRIKE] the 11-mark paper as the examiner didn't give me the answer sheet.

5) I can't give you the paper in the last five minutes of exam. I don't know what you mean here - you can't give your paper in to the examiner in the last five minutes? You can't give out new pieces of writing paper in the last five minutes?

See above. We don't normally use "get over" to say something has finished. You can say "It's over".
