问题 is just as valid in this context as 题 in my opinion

Yes, if you express "questions" in full compound form.

Except that 问题 would actually be informal in this context (e.g. students talking about the test, not what the teacher would say at the start or what would be written on the test instructions, which would both be ”十五题“), and would require a preceding 个.

Why is a measure word not required? Or is 题 itself a measure word?
