How is my credit score calculated?

Your credit score is calculated by a credit bureau, using an algorithm that looks at the information from your credit file such as accounts open, defaults, missed payments and even bankruptcies. Your credit score will range from 1000 to 1,200 depending on the bureau but generally a higher credit score suggests you are less risky. If you have a low credit score, it can make it difficult to obtain a loan or credit.
