Got together to make the grade (8)


I believe the answer is:


'got together' is the definition.
('gather' can be a synonym of 'get together')

'make the grade' is the wordplay.
'make' indicates anagramming the letters.
'thegrade' anagrammed gives 'GATHERED'.

'to' is the link.

(Other definitions for gathered that I've seen before include "Picked up" , "Concluded from evidence" , "Collected in one place and concluded" , "Drew" , "Surmised" .)

I've seen this clue in The Irish Independent.
