An interesting difference. Both have dictionary translations as "class." And http://www.baike.com/wiki describes 班级 as "the basic unit of the school."

Grade school and High school classes are organized into much tighter social units than is ...

It's rare to use "了不得了" in Chinese, but using "不得了了"(Bu4 De2 Liao3 Le0) is more common. So, "不得了"(Bu4 De2 Liao3) means that cannot be ignored and even extremely serious/important.

The summary of 来's usage, as a complement to user3306356's answer. You can use 来 as a concrete verb, as in 奥巴马来北京见维尼熊, which you already know. Less concrete it is when 来 is used in some verb serializations, as in 过来, 上来, the main verb is 过 or 上, 来 only functions as an indication of "towards me". Sometimes 来 is used metaphorically, as in 我醒来了. Even less ...
