Hi,

Here is a short extract from the book 1984 by George Orwell:

"Proletarians, in practice, are not allowed to graduate into the Party. The most gifted among them, who might possibly become nuclei of discontent, are simply marked down by the Thought Police and eliminated."

Does "mark down" here mean "identify"?

Any idea?

Thank you in advance.
