Why add 'minutes' when say exact time?
Why not say nineteen past eight but say nineteen minutes past eight?
If someone asks me: When will you leave for school? Can I answer by saying 'At nineteen minutes past eight.'?

You could say either. But they both sound very old-fashioned to me. There are many ways to state time in English, it varies from country to country.
