It can be useful to use the request object in a view to retrieve input, this was easy with CodeIgniter 3 but with CodeIgniter 4 the documentation doesn’t cover this.
Add this to the top of your view
<?php $request = \Config\Services::request(); ?>
Then you can use the request methods like this
<input type="hidden" id="score" name="score" value="<?=$request->getVar('score')?>">
