Getting harder to score good grades in Bahasa Melayu

My children have been doing very well in school, consistently scoring high marks in all subjects but Bahasa Melayu.

It is worrying as the subject is important in gaining access to higher education in the future.

I would like to know if the authorities have been raising the bar on the subject in the past few decades to counter the advent of the Internet, luring the younger generation to abandon their mother tongue for a world language of English.
