Today I completed an enjoyable challenge - slaying the Ender Dragon on hardcore mode!

Ender Dragon

Since beating him, I know I have a rather large score - I'd really like to see what it is! Is there any way to be able to see my score without having to end up like this?

I thought the score was just the xp collected (IIRC° – ratchet freak May 3 '13 at 7:47
According to the Wiki, When the Player dies, a score is displayed on the death screen. This score is exactly the same to the amount of XP the player gathered during their life. So I'd say @ratchetfreak is correct. – tombull89 May 3 '13 at 8:30

Get Minecraft Forge and IngameInfo then add Score: &e<score> somewhere in .minecraft/config/mod_ingameinfo.cfg and you'll be able to see your score without dying.

Use NBTExplorer to open .minecraft/saves/<world_name>/players/<player_name>.dat and view the Score data.
