    It looks quite possibly to be a situation where you are catching errors which cannot occur.

Remove the try-catch block. It is not possible to have an exception here. Generally speaking, if you're having problems trying to cover a try-catch block, it is either untestable, or unnecessary. It's important to learn when exceptions can occur in order to catch them effectively. Also see Pokemon Catch - Generic Exception Handling In Apex and Test Code coverage catch block, as well as Can batchable custom iterables support null values?, in which I discover that scope will never contain null values.
