    For people living in the UK, getting by without a word of English would be impossible, as would getting by without a word of whatever the national language is anywhere in the world. Most people don't need to use advanced maths in their daily lives- nowhere near as many as language.

    I was responding strickly to the question.

    Of course mother tongue is important, but if you check you will see the comparison is between English, Maths and Science.

    Also if your description of Maths advanced must surely it must also apply to English, and obviously your condition "getting by without a word of English" is hardly the same as needing advanced English.

    Although never having taken a level English, I may have to be corrected.

    Yeah, the problem with this question is that none of those subjects are really necessary at A-level UNLESS you want to pursue a career directly involving them; eg an English teacher would need English, but not many other people need to analyse the origins of speech or poetry in their daily lives. Doctors would need biology and chemistry, but plenty of people don't.

    I must admit I thought it related to "working knowledge" when I first read it. At advanced there is no need for any to survive, exept if one is needed for your career. In which case they are all equally important, in that it wouldn't be able to pursue your career without whichever is relevant.
