I was just wondering if it's necessary to revise everyday (around 30 minutes a day per AS subject) to get AAA or A*A*A*?

I have only one method of studying and it's simply listening to my written notes while reading them, any other methods would be appreciated also

I wouldn't say it's necessary but as long as it doesn't feel like too much then it can't hurt.
My suggestion is to read around what you're studying, don't stick to the syllabus. Write probing questions on your notes, research the questions or ask your teacher. Learn to enjoy what you're learning by delving deeper and you'll find it a lot easier.

I am doing subjects at college of - Geography, History, Law and Politics.

What is your recommended way of studying these heavy humanity-based subjects?

I did A level philosophy in one year. I studied AS in my own time whilst studying A2 with the class. I found it relatively easy because I read around what I was studying. I was passionate about what I was learning. Since these subjects are about argumentation, I always kept in mind the opposing view. Sometimes I wrote my argument in a view opposing mine. My knowledge of the subject went beyond A level because I was asking deeper questions.
Take a critical approach of your work, be your own opponent in an argument.

Try different styles, maybe watch videos on YouTube for your subject ( I used YouTube videos for economics revision). Maybe even set up your own A-level videos on YouTube for the subjects you take- teaching Is meant to be a great way of learning and you help other people while your at it! You will obviously have to work very hard to get top grades, I'd say if you do a bit each day all year you'll be able to master the spec and then running up to exams work on past papers. Make sure you don't overwork yourself- remember these are some of the best years of your life so enjoy them!
