Any of the websites for the boards that your DC is sitting for that subject.

The main exam boards are:

AQA: www.aqa.org.uk
Edexcel: https://qualifications.pearson.com/en/home.html
OCR: www.ocr.org.uk

I also recommend the examiners reports as they often give example of good answers and give feedback on where students went wrong.

The papers are usually available about a year after the exam. Do NOT let your child try and find the 2017 papers as this will mean the mock is a complete waste of time.

Presumably there aren't very many for the new GCSEs?

The exam boards have prepared lots of mock papers and additional resources for teachers as they are trying to keep market share.

The old papers can still be useful.

No - all the boards are regulated to make sure the standard is the same.
