Exposure on Nikon F3

The F3 has been sleeping for ages, got new batteries and two film rolls, an Ilford Delta 100ISO BW and an HP5 400ISO, now the Delta is loaded, took some shots with both my dad's old pre Ai (modified) lenses and with my 50 and 85 D f1.4 but wondering how does the camera evaluates exposure, too used to digital now and wondering how to work it out on analog.

The idea is to learn to develop on my own and then to eventually scan, got the F3 manual so I can read about exposure but any hint would greatly be appreciated.
