Synonyms of "Score" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between total score and aggregate score ?
A: Total score is calculated like this: Say you took a history test. There were 20 questions. The teacher would divide 100/20 = 5 points each question. Say you got two questions wrong. Your total score would be 90.
Aggregated score: Say you took an exam so you could teach English at the high school level. The exam had 300 questions. Aggregated scores assess your knowledge over a battery of factors. Just because you have weakness in one element to teaching English, a strength in another elements could pull up your score so you could receive a passing score. Here might be the assessed elelments:
American Lit.
Bristish Lit
World Lit
English grammar
Planning instruction
Guided instruction
Instruction Assessment
You would answer questions from these 7 areas. You would receive a score for each area. Those scores added together (or aggregated) would be your final score. (which would determine if you pass or fail.) Then each state would set a score each English teacher must score on that exam to receive her teaching certication.
Q: What is the difference between How would you feel if your English score were lower than you expected? and How do you feel if your English score were lower than you expected? ?
A: "How would you feel if...?" → ◯◯なら、どう思いますか?→ 成績は思ったより低ければ、どう思いますか?
これが文法的に正しいです。"How do you feel if...?"の場合は、日常会話で聞こえるかもしれませんが、そんなに自然ではないので使わない方がいいと思います。あと、この場合のように、"if"を使ったら、後に"were" (と前に"would") と言うべきです。"was"は正しくないのに、ネイティヴによく使われるので、自然に聞こえるかもしれません… が、やっぱり、"How would you feel if A were B"と言った方がいいと思います。
Q: What is the difference between I got a score of 100 at the final exam. and I got 100 at the final exam. ?
A: They both mean the same thing and can both be used. The only difference is the first one gives more detail. “I got a score of 100” explains more. If you just say “I got 100” then it’s not as clear. You got 100 what? Some people might be confused.
But because you say “I got 100 at the final exam” saying final exam will help people know you are talking about a test. They will figure out the 100 means your score.
Hope that helps!
Q: What is the difference between I decided to take the score over 150 and I have decided to take the score over 150 ?
A: Have decided is very recent, and maybe someone could still convince you to change your mind.
Decided is final. It’s completely in the past.
Q: What is the difference between score and mark and average ?
A: "Mark" is more commonly used in British English. "Score" and "grade" are more common in American English. An average is several grades added up and divided by the number of assignments. It is a type of score, but not all classes grade using an average, so that is why it's a separate term.

Other questions about "Score"

Q: If I had got good score in high school, I would have gone to university. Does this sound natural?
A: Corrected version:
"If I had gotten a good score in high school, I would have been able to go to university" (US version).

-Why is it a "US version"?
-That's because the word "had gotten" is the US version of "had got". In UK english "have got" is the closest term to "had gotten".

-There are two errors in your original sentence.
1. You forgot to add a "a" after "had got".
2. The use of the word "would" is a bit ambiguous(微妙). This is because by saying "would" you are implying that it was certain that you would get into a university. However, this would not work as you previously said "If". The word "If" is and should only be used hypothetically or when you are in doubt (not 100% sure/certain). "If I get this in, I'm going to buy everyone a drink."

If your still confused the literal translation for "if" is the Japanese structure "~と" and "~たら"
例えば、「日本が勝つとビールをおごるぞ!」
「日本が勝ったらとビールをおごるぞ!」

What I think would be a better fit to your context:

"If I had done better in high school, I could have gone to a university."
Q: What does "For those keeping score, "mean?

For those keeping score, the one useful one is Esuna - Libra, Sight, Teleport and Cure are useless and Cecil's Spirit sucks so Cura is pathetic.
A: "For those people who want to pay attention to the details" / For those people who have been paying attention to the details"

People who "keep score" in a game, such as soccer or baseball, are people who pay attention to the allotment of points (e.g. usually this is an actual scorekeeper, but it can apply to people who are just watching).

So in this case, the writer is addressing any readers who have been paying close attention to the material discussed previously. Those readers would notice (from analyzing the data) that Esuna is the most useful.
