Work experience points for 189

Hi all,
I got a positive skill assessment today but have a doubt on how my points can be calculated :

I have total 6 years work experience based on the assessment.
3yrs 9m is within Australia on a 457 and 2 yrs 3m is in India.
Since Aus experience will give me 10 points for 3 years only, I want to know if the 9 extra months can be added to India experience to score 5 points for overseas experience.

Logically speaking, i should be getting 15 points based on 6 years but not really sure how it really works. but if the 3yrs rule is not flexible, i end up getting only 10 points.

Please confirm

No, logically you only get 10 points since the system puts much more emphasis on Australian work experience. The rules are not flexible. You can claim Australian work experience for your time in Australia and overseas work experience for time outside Australia. You cannot include Australian experience for claiming overseas points.
