    1) Make yourself at home and help yourself to a cup of tea. <~~OK
    After waking up, it takes me a while to get up.

    2) Have you woken the child up?
    (I'd say, "Have you awakened the child?" or "Did you wake the child up?")

    She apologized to me for arriving late/for not doing her homework/for leaving her book at home. <~~OK

    3) She complained to the headmaster about being reprimanded in the class register. <~~OK

    4) She sat down and took her English book out of the rucksack.
    (You could use "picked" if you mean she picked it up off the table or desk or floor or ... )

    5) I wonder if I will be able to pass my driving test. <~~OK

    She celebrated for passing her driving test.

    After waking up, it takes me a while to get up.
    (The repetition of "up" in this sentence sounds awkward. How about this: "After awakening, it takes me a while to get up" or "After waking up, it takes me a while to get out of bed.")
