Do not experiment with any medication on your own. Do not take anything without the recommendation of a doctor. Side effects can last for a long time and include insomnia, triggering psychosis, arrhythmia, hypersensitivity, etc. It is not worth the risk just to get more marks.
Any thing against nature has side effects & may be risky for health. Our good health depends on many factors including good diet & good sleep of 6-8 hrs. Modalert tablets does not take the place of getting enough sleep. & it should not be used to treat tiredness etc. So it is not advisable to take this tablets for study purpose.
