Does it matter which 7 hours I sleep?

I've noticed that when I sleep from, say, 11-6 as opposed to 12-7, I feel very different upon waking up. Even just shifting everything one hour late, when I get up at 7 my mornings are pleasant and alert. If I wake up at 6, even if I had gone to bed and fell asleep at 11, I had to take a nap somewhere in there. Are there studies that shows which hours you sleep actually matter? Or are all of this in my head?

How can I hack my sleep schedule for 3 weeks?

I have 2.5 weeks until my university final exams. I have a lot of review to do, but at the same time, I'm also learning quite a bit of new material in my classes so I need some extra hours in my day. Since I have no other urgent commitments in the next 2 weeks (such as midterm exams), I am willing to sacrifice on sleep. Normally I have a standard schedule: asleep from ~11:30 to ~7:30. I understand there are quite a bit of polyphasic sleep schedules, but I'm only looking for something temporary and those typically take a while and have a gruelling transition period. My schedule is occupied from 7am to about 5 pm.

visualize this

How would one visualize 3 parametars on the same graph? I have to visualize my sleeping schedule (time + day) + alternations of my body temperature during the day on the same graph. How could it be done?

How can I improve my sleep with drugs?

My sleep schedule is very hectic. While I almost always have to get up early, I frequently have to stay up very late to complete projects or have at least a few hours to spend with friends. I try and use the weekends to catch up on sleep, and I have many tricks to haul myself out of bed in the mornings but I was wondering if anyone might know a relatively safe combination of drugs that would not only help me quickly fall asleep but also wake up quickly if I haven't gotten my "full" 8 hours of sleep?
