FICO scores represent your credit rating and they range from 300 to 850. The higher your FICO score the better interest rates you would qualify for, as lenders base their lending on this figure. You should aim to keep your score as high as possible.
The factors that affect your credit rating are as follows:
– Your payment history
– New credit you apply for and receive
– Types of credit you use
– Amount you owe
– Length of your credit history
