May I know if it is advisable to include the modules that I have studied in my undergrad and postgrad in the Education section of my CV? Or should I remove them and use the space for other information?

I would not add this information. It is mosly irrelevant for your application, so you can better use the real estate for something that actually strengthens your profile. Having said that, it also doesn't do any harm.
The question to ask yourself is how does it answer/add to what the company you are applying to is looking for. If you want to show academic excellence then showing how you performed strongly across all your modules could be useful. Another reason could be that you are applying for a technical role where you feel outlining some of your core modules will help explain that better. On the other hand, just putting a list of all the modules you took, in my view, doesn't add anything where you can always just add your transcript to the application and save the precious 'real estate' of your CV for more meaingful use.
