    The entry criteria are what are stated. They may ask for higher grades, but this is at the discretion of the college, and is usually dependent on your individual application. For example, if you did poorly in any assessments but did well in interview, or vice versa, or something similar, they may feel you are a borderline candidate and set you an offer with a higher grade requirement, or an A* in a specific subject etc, to see you stretch to that higher level of attainment.

    But provided you meet the standard entry criteria, you should be under consideration, although bear in mind Oxford's different selection process given they interview fewer candidates, and so rely slightly more on pre-interview criteria (such as GCSEs, assessments, submitted works, academic reference) to shortlist students. Bear in mind AAA is for Oriental Studies at Oxford - Cambridge requires A*AA for AMES as the minimum standard, although you'll probably be reasonably able to achieve this if even if you're applying to Oxford.
