    Of the utmost importance - synonym

    I'm writing an essay and I'd like to use again a phrase: 'Of the utmost importance'. Can anyone give me a synonym so as not to repeat it?

    Vital.

    (Note that we don't usually give help with homework or assignments. I must be feeling very generous this evening.)

    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Well we shouldn't leave the OP with the idea that he/she can say "of the vital importance".

    No, we shouldn't, though you could have explained! So:

    "Of the utmost importance" can be replaced with "of vital importance" or simply "vital".

    Of the essence, of overriding significance.

    Not a teacher.
