1. I don't believe it is. The method I would use to find them would definitely be an A Level skill. They could perhaps ask you to give the points based on a factorised form of the cubic but they wouldn't anything further.

2. In most cases yes. You can see at the top of the screen who submitted the question. If it has not been submitted by an exam board and it seems too challenging its probably the case. The STEP and Oxford Mathematical are the ones I avoided when I wanted to practice questions likely to come up in an exam.

No worries
For maths, I'd recommend Dr Frost for isolated question practice. For full papers for maths and science were what I found best you can search on the exam board's website. Mathsmadeeasy and maths genie also have good topic worksheets for maths. I used free science lessons on Youtube to revise the science topics but otherwise I didn't use any other websites for triple science

Hope this helps

Finding the roots of a cubic graph is not part of the GCSE maths syllabus. However, it is part of the Level 2 AQA further maths syllabus and a level maths.

Yes I reckon level 3 is fine, some of the level 4 questions help build your confidence if you understand them and can answer them.
