How Do I Understand My VedaScore?
Understanding your VedaScore helps give you confidence when applying for credit. Your VedaScore is a credit rating between 0-1200 that lenders can look at when deciding whether to accept your application for a loan or credit. Generally, the higher your score, the better you look to lenders.
Your VedaScore is calculated using the information on your credit report at a certain point in time and, as it can be used by lenders to assess your application for a loan, it’s an important number to know.
Your VedaScore is also a great tool in helping you understand the information on your credit report.
If you have ever looked at your credit report, you’ll know that it can contain lots of unfamiliar information that can be difficult to understand. With your VedaScore, not only do you find out your credit rating, but you’ll also learn what information on your credit report is contributing to that rating, good and bad. We call this information 'contributing factors'. It’s important to understand what's contributing to your credit rating as there may be things you can do to help improve your credit rating.
