Selecting Answers for any topic will provide several exam questions on that topic with written solutions. If you just want the questions then select the topic title.
For example look at 100-More Difficult Rearranging Formulae, this document has 12 examination question and written solutions on the topic. There are also video links for students to study the topic further; the video links have been provided by Mohammed Ladak on MathedUp!  site where you will also find the Takeaways hosted. The author of the written solutions remains a mystery (thank you so much whoever you are!). The questions are hosted on several other sites also including here on the King Edward Vi Sheldon Heath Academy site. 

WJEC have a Question Bank tool which allows teachers of Maths, Computing, Science, Electronics, Business Studies, Food & Nutrition and Physical Education to create a paper at either Entry Level, GCE or GCSE.  I can confirm the Question Bank tool is very easy to use and works brilliantly;  I searched for GCSE Maths filtered by Algebra and Problem and created a paper with mark schemes and examiners’ comments in minutes.
