It's essentially meant be sort of GCSE type (unit 1), most economic teachers dislike the unit because it's not really economics at all and mostly just memory with no theory

I can't vouch for GCSE economics but I have studied A-level economics.

The the AQA AS micro-economics unit lays down a solid foundation of economic theory. Theory and concept such as elasticity, economies of scale and productivity etc. are essential to understanding more advanced theories in A2.

I agree that a certain amount is just common sense though
