1. Sports jacket is not considered 'formal'. Bear in mind that THIS IS NOT A COLLEGE BUT A SCHOOL. I think you better consult teachers before doing so. As far as I know no one has been wearing that to normal classes, except when there are sports events.
2. Yes, all classes including all LABs are fully equipped with air-conditioners. You may wish to bring a sweater/pullover if you think you can't stand the cold.
3. Hostel...hmm not sure. Because there was some rumours that juniors will be staying in another apartment, not the one we are staying now. The new apartment will be much closer to school (i think you will have to walk to school if that is the case), but going to city (here i mean somewhere you can find a shopping mall with lots of shops, nearest = Cheras Leisure Mall) you will have to take bus, and there is bus stop just outside the apartment. So, it would be much convenient to travel to school and shopping than our current hostel.
4. There is no students in our batch from Klang (as far as I know). There is one from Kepong, one from Petaling Jaya though.
5. No I wouldn't say life at Cempaka is hectic. It all depends on how you would manage your time. First year of A-levels is honeymoon, according to our grand senior, partly because the school works are still manageable, and teachers will not pressure the students too hard. But it became busier towards the AS exams, which is in May/June. So, be prepared to hear phrases like 'You all must get Brilliance Award. Each and every one of you!' (Brilliance Award is the award to top scorers in each A level subject, usually 100% for Maths, unknown for others) Last year we had 2 Brilliance Award winners in Maths(2 grand seniors), quite unexpectedly, so one of the teachers is very eager in pushing us to get Brilliance award in Chemistry... LOL
6. Example of sports would be : Table Tennis, Badminton, Swimming, Volley Ball, Soccer, Basketball, etc. There are some uncommon sports, like Fencing, Equestrianism, Wall-climbing... but NOT offered here, or not offered to the A-levels. You will have a better overview when you arrive. Need not to worry.
There isn't any 'more active'/'more interesting' sports, because every sports will be having 1 training session per week, and it depends on individual whether they prefer this sports than the others. I hope I have answered your questions.
Juniors please do not worry too much about how and what will happen on the day of registration or the days after. It will come to you naturally, so what you can do is take your time to do whatever you wish. You would miss those days after you come to Cempaka, because you will embark on a different stage of life.
