I didn't think it would. I was just making a guess based on the form blwyddyn wedi, which seems to mean "the next year".
Where have you seen that before?
I've seen blwyddyn wedi hyn for "the year after this", but never *blwyddyn wedi on its own like that. Wedi is a preposition, not an adjective. The way you say "next year" is blwyddyn nesa.

In informal contexts, yeah. Similarly, nesa, above, would be written nesaf in a newspaper article, but in a context like this, that seems a bit fussy.

c) Rhaid i mi fynd i'r ysgol yfory. (necessary)
Those are three possible ways of expressing this idea, yes. (There are many more besides, of course, just as with English.)

If you literally mean "wake up", the verb is deffro (N)/dihuno (S). But codi "get up" would be more common in this context.
If cynnar means "early", how would you make this into an adverb?
"For" can be tricky to translate. I think in this instance, I would go with i fynd i'r ysgol. Oherwydd ysgol "because of school" would also work.
