I was just wondering...

From a technical aspect...

For beam - and it would probably apply to most compulsory levels as well as all four events...regarding the degree of leg separation.

Gymnast A completes the leap with 180 degree separation for, say level 4.

Gymnast A completes the leap (in the same routine) with the required 90 degree separation.

Does gymnast A receive kuddos or maybe a lesser deduction for exceeding the requirement, or do the scores stay exactly the same?

There is no bonus for exceeding the requirements, nor is there a deduction for only meeting the requirements. Of course, other factors may also come into play, such as dynamics, etc.
