I think 'make a score' is used more frequently-like this: 'If you want to make a high score~' :) And to my thinking, when you talk about your study, you'd better use the expression 'make a grade' or 'get a mark' rather than 'make a score'.

If you want a high score, you'll have to study hard.
If you want to get good grades, you'll have to study hard.
These expressions are more common and accurate.

Hi. I think your sentence is good enough, but here is my recommandation

for you about the sentence.

"If you want to get better grade, you will have to work harder."

This might have a little different word feeling, because I used "better

score" instead of your "high score". However I think my sentence gives

sentence a bit more natural flow due to its comparison sentence

structure on each part.
