Is this some kind of serious tremor?

I am a 18-year-old person and I experience tremor especially in my fingers. My classmate noticed it back in 9th or 10th grade. It also happened during the proper contests and during the last minutes of the examinations. I didn't take this seriously because it just happens sometimes until I felt the shaking of my hands and I've seen it with my eyes often times. I am taking B1, B6 and B12 nowadays and I can see the results. I also think that this was because of my lifestyle: having a 5-6 hours (or even less) of sleep and drinking coffee (I am now drinking coffee less than sometimes).

Hello, sorry no one has answered you as of yet.  In your age, tremors would not be terribly concerning.  Things like stress, lack of sleep, anxiety, and caffeine could all cause them.  You're about the right age for all of these things going on.  However, because you don't know for sure, you should tell your parents and then get evaluated.  Your general practitioner is the right place to start as they can direct you to a specialist. They'll ask a series of questions and examine you to let you know the next step.

Here is a long article that goes through every thing possible about hand tremors.  It's a good read but much of it will not apply at all to you. The important thing to note is your age, your life circumstances and to get seen by a doctor.  Here is the article https://www.medicinenet.com/tremor/article.htm

We wish you the best of health.

Hello~I hope you are better by now. Sara has given you some great suggestions, I would also like to add that if you are still having these issues to maybe see a chiropractor, you may have some pinched nerves that are causing the problems. The chiro will take some x-rays, study them and go over the findings with you. After a few treatments, you should start to feel better, I would certainly discuss with your folks.
