Actually, Alen is right. If you can get 93% > in your chem/phys/calc then you might be able to compete for some of the scholarships. I was in the 86 - 93 range. However, Alens case must be exceptional because its is very difficult to find and even compete for a scholarship that pays anywhere near full tuition. There are exceptions, i.e my brother got a lot of his tuition paid for being apart of a group that supported people with his particular condition.
Well the scholarship I have gradually increases the longer you have it and I've had it for ages, which is why it can literally cover my tuition in full now. Those that haven't had it for like 5 years however, can't. I guess it's a combo of luck and me just generally acing shit since I started going to school

This is why you always take exams that are externally moderated/marked. Dunno about your standard system, but I'm sure you can do something like SATs or, what I personally did, IB. Most normal unis will always have IB requirements for those that took IB and they'll always be reasonable, at least as far as I've checked
