Your classes are to start from 20th june (1 week after ours:lookround:).Just chill out whatever time is left as you will have to do a lot once you are here. its going to be fast and hectic. you can carry your laptops to the class but whether you can use it while a class is going on, depends on the professor. same can be said regarding atmosphere of class also. For normal classes casuals are ok, but for formal functions, guest lectures etc, formals are required (eg. your first day orientation). Classrooms are wifi. Social work is scheduled to be in january.
And dont worry, your questions can be answered once you join. So relax for the time.

I would suggest u and all guys posted recently who want to do CFA to go through the entire thread first. U wud get answers to all most all ur queries there.
@About ur specific query
U can start preparing with CFA materials that u get from CFA institute once u register. If u r in no mood to register in recent times, then u can have a look to schewser's material or Elan guides for that matter. It will give u idea about how should u plan ur studies n all.
Passing ratio is decided by AIMR or CFA institute for that matter. If u notice in India, passing rate for CAs' is very less, same way institute decides depending upon demand and supply in the market i.e. how many professionals require in an economy on yearly basis.
Please correct me if I am wrong on that.:)
And whether level 1 is easy or not is totally subjective matter.
Yes, every trimester you will be having mid-terms. Also, there will be some surprise quizzes in a few subjects.
Your final evaluation for each subject will comprise of combination of following-
Mid-term, quizzes, class participation,project report/presentation, assignments and end-term marks.
