Not Even that......if your score is negative the minimum one is taken as your best score. For example if your scores in 2 submissions are -8 and -14, finally -14 is taken as best score to calculate rank.

Why @admin??

There was an issue with the scoring function in SEAARI that led to a negative scores. We have fixed it and all the submissions were rejudged. Also, the problem statement was updated. Regret the inconvenience caused.
