It's good that you have considered interest in science before the scaling, and yes, they all scale up if you do well in them. :)

The sciences, indeed any subject, will only scale up if you do well in them. Don't bother replying on scaling to save poor marks - it doesn't work that way. However, if you love the sciences, then you're likely to do well anyway, so no need to worry about scaling. :)

If you do extremely well in all your subjects, you won't have to concern yourself with scaling at all and your desired high UAI will come.

Doing well at 4 unit maths put my uai up by about 2 more than if i'd done 2/3 unit and got 100 in 2unit. But like everyone is saying dont pick on scaling i just love maths.

Of course you're not guaranteed a high UAI, if you do bad in them, then no. But seeing as you love science, you are sure to do quite well.

Put as a lot of people have said, don't pick because of scaling
