I can see why the ACO are suspicious. Who advised you to change the author name though? and why would anyone do this unless they wanted to hide something? Changing properties in embedded files is going to considerable effort and you are not advised anywhere in the information pack to alter file properties for any reason. whatsoever…
The only time I have encountered a legitimate reason for deliberately altering the file properties was in respect of lawyers to protect their clients in specific circumstances.
As a former ACO officer I know that mentors write work for students and try to cover up their tracks. So you would need to show that this was not the case but if your mentor is already on the University’s ‘watch list’ and all their students have changed the file properties it will be deemed highly suspicious as there is no legitimate reason for this (but perhaps some nefarious ones)
