Interesting. I think I would put English and languages at the top as they are the basis of communication.
You also dont have economics in there.
Also agriculture.

Biology, Chemistry, Physics - the development of medicine, ecological understanding, etc are keys to the modern world
Languages - international communication has never been so important as during the 2020 crises
Art/ photography - We're all obsessed with art, whether it's through clothing, paintings, book covers or something else. In terms of broad impact, it has to be up there. Film has also shaped the world we live in to a great extent.
English - only 4th because it is only one language. However, it teaches literacy, communication and text criticism, so in a similar question about the anglophone world, I'd put it higher.
History - helps us to analyse opinion and to understand how the modern world was formed, so that we can improve in the future.
Geography - Teaches us to understand the world
Mathematics - It's important within science and finance, so massive impact on individuals' work and lifestyles, but in terms of independent world impact, I can't see that it has much without economics or science.

We also dont have law religion and philosophy.
Architecture.
Astronomy.

I think its an interesting question, but it requires a lot of thought.

For modern times I believe it is the computer and the internet.

I’d put Law and criminology (respectively) between foodtech and history just because unis don’t require them for their respective degrees and some even prefer you not to have them

Interesting! I found the history A level curriculum quite well-organised, althought I reckon there's too much content at GCSE given the number of subjects most people take
