Could you guys help me in this? Looking into chords doesn't always work in recognizing a scale. So what more elements should I consider?

Identify the tonic - find out where it resolves to, then identify the key if possible from the chords - then look at the melody and see what potential scales are there - look for notes that batch with chord tones to point you in the right direction.

The final note the song ends in determines the key.
Work out the notes within the key from the chords or by playing along lead/melody sections.
Take a wee look.
On playing the Paul Gilbert signature at the guitar store extensively, my missus sighed:
"Put it down now, It's like you love that guitar more than me!"
In Which I replied.
"Well it has got two F-Holes!"

If I may add, this only works if it is a cadence . It won't work all the time.
There's a good chance that what I've written above is useless and if you take any of the advice it's your own fault.
