This is a pair of scissors or these are scissors, but I was corrected this is scissors...

Actually i would have preferred "this is scissors". :-D Since there are many sentences like "this is shorts" etc. At least it would have been predictable. But why suddenly going fancy pants with "pair of scissors"? :-D. "These are scissors" would have completely sufficed
