Assess, briefly, maths problem at college (3,2)


I believe the answer is:

sum up

I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

'assess briefly maths' is the definition.
I can't judge whether this definition defines the answer.

'problem at college' is the wordplay.
'problem' becomes 'sum' (arithmetic problem).
'at college' becomes 'up' ('up' can mean at university).
'sum'+'up'='SUM UP'

Can you help me to learn more?

(Other definitions for sum up that I've seen before include "Recapitulate (as for jury)" , "(Of a judge) review the evidence" , "Money more than before" , "Provide a synopsis" , "Summarise" .)

I've seen this clue in The Times.
