This reminds me – I used to laugh when people got negative scores on tests. They could leave the whole thing blank and get a zero but apparently life…uh…finds away. Apparently, if you’re the President, getting negative scores is an actual achievement.”Pretend it doesn’t exist and yell at people until it goes away (i.e. underlying fixes it for you)” is the only way he knows how to deal with problems. Doesn’t work on a pandemic, though. Some tests like the SAT subtract points for incorrect answers to prevent guessing. You get a better score by recognizing you don’t confidently know the answer and just leaving it blank, rather than attempting to guess and get lucky.
EDIT FOR CLARITY: You can’t get an ABSOLUTE negative score overall on the SAT, but the concept is still there- you can lose points on a per-question basis rather than just get a zero. so it’s possible to do worse than a blank test submission if you got enough answers incorrectly. however, you’d still have a positive score because you start with some free points. but functionally, you could be worse off than where you started when you first sat down to begin filling it out. You cannot get a negative SAT score. It’s where the old joke
