meaning of 得了

I hear 得了 all over the place but I'm not clear of its meaning. It seems to have multiple meanings. Could anyone explain it? Maybe this might make a good qingwen.

For 得了 alone I do not know, but 不得了(read bùdéliǎo) is common and means "extremely".

好的不得了: super good/nice

or (from 有道詞典):


That English exam was a real killer
