There are a few things that the Refs will tend to add time on for.

1) Subs - general guideline is that 30 secs per sub made is added.

2) Injuries - If a player is hurt and time is lost the ref can add it on (this is usually what causes the longer extra time periods).

3) Time Wasting - If a team is deliberetly slowing the game down (taking too long over freekicks, throw ins etc) the ref has the leeway to add more time.
