So, what comprises the total score of the SAT? Is it just the sum of the math and evidence-based reading and writing sections? Are there any sections that don't count towards the total?

Yes, you're correct. The total score of the SAT test is a combination of the Evidence-Based Reading and Writing (ERW) section and the Math section. There's no 'hidden' score that isn't included in the sum of these sections.

Each of these sections is scored independently from 200 to 800. So the total SAT score is a combined value with a range between 400 and 1600. It's quite straightforward – your total SAT score is the sum of your Math score and ERW score.

Hope this explanation clears up your confusion!
