When a uni says the requirement is A*AA-AAA or AAA-AAB etc, what determines them giving out a A*AA offer or the latter.

The A*AA will be the standard offer. The lower offer will probably be for 'contextual offers' - for applicants applying from lower performing schools or disadvantaged backgrounds - but it may not be that. And 'contextual' means different things at different Unis.
If the course page does not explain exactly what the lower offer is for and how you qualify for it - email the Uni and ask. Never, ever, just assume you will get the lower offer whatever your circumstances are, or whatever position you think your school is in.
