I'm planning of taking the papers in feb 2014. Just wondering, if I was successful would I have to put Aberystwyth as my firm choice for the offer to be unconditional or can I put them as my insurance and it still be unconditional?

(May change my mind and put them as firm depending on which of m chosen two I like more)

You don't have to confirm any Universities until a bit later on, so you'll have a chance to see the results from Aberystwyth first as to if you're given a scholarship

But I'm not sure about after they've offered/not offered, if you have to confirm them as 1st choice or not.. Hmm.

I can confirm this for you.
If you take the entrance scholarship exams and are successful you do not have to put Aber as your firm choice university.
However, if you want to be eligible for the unconditional offer and grant money then you do have to put Aber as your firm choice university.

Remember that you have until May (exact date for this application cycle I do not know) to finalise your choices in regards to your firm or insurance choice. However, Aber start their accommodation process for new unconditional applicants in around April time and this is done on a first come first served basis. On the application for accommodation you can only state a preference for the accommodation type, for instance self catered single room with en suite, catered twin room or budget single room, you cannot choose the location or specific hall that you are allocated.

For any other questions you may have, please see the student Q&A thread found here. You can post any questions you have in there and either myself or someone else will quickly answer your question.
