How close are you to your credit limits?
The less of your available credit you use, the better it is for your credit score (assuming you are also paying on time). Most experts recommend using no more than 30% of available credit on any card. Our calculator shows you where you stand.

What is a credit grade?
A credit grade summarises your entire credit report information into a letter depending on what credit score you have got. For example, an ‘A’ credit grade refers to having a high/very good credit score and an ‘F’ grade refers to a poor credit score. By comparing this information to the patterns in thousands of past credit reports, credit grading identifies your level of credit risk. Your grade tells a lender how likely you are to repay a loan, or make credit payments on time. Having an A grade, the better chance you have of getting the credit you apply for.
How is my credit grade calculated?
Credit grading generally looks at how late your payments were, how much was owed, how recently, and how often you missed a payment. This grading is calculated by a mathematical equation that evaluates many sorts of data points (score factors) from your credit report at that exact credit-reporting agency. There are five specific factors that come in how your score is calculated.
- Payment History reflects whether or not you create payments on time on each of your accounts.
- Credit Utilization covers the available credit you’ve used. If possible, keep on with 30% or less of your total available credit.
- Credit Age shows how long you’ve had credit, and how old each of your accounts is.
- Credit Mix covers the types of revolving and fixed-payment credit accounts you hold.
- Credit Inquiries illustrate how many times you’ve applied for a brand new credit in the last few months or years. New credit applications make up 10% of your credit score.
How is my credit grade used?
