Q. What is a FICO® Score?
FICO® Scores, the credit scores created by Fair Isaac Corporation (FICO), are the most widely used credit scores in lending decisions.Lenders can request FICO® Scores from all three major credit reporting agencies. FICO develops FICO® Scores based solely on information in consumer credit files maintained at the credit reporting agencies. Understanding your FICO®Score can help you better understand your credit risk and allow you to effectively manage your financial health. A good FICO ® Score means better financial options for you.
Q. What is the lowest and highest possible FICO® Score?
A. The classic FICO® Scores which are in use today by the vast majority of lenders all fall within the 300‐850 score range.This score range was introduced to establish an easy‐to‐understand, common frame of reference for lenders and consumers.
Q. What are Key Score Factors?
A. When a lender receives your FICO® Score, "key score factors" are also delivered, which are the top factors that affect the score.Addressing some or all of these key score factors can help you improve your financial health over time. Having a good FICO® Score can put you in a better position to qualify for credit or better terms in the future.

Q. Why is this score different from other scores that I received from somewhere else?
A. The FICO® Score Texell provides is based on information from member’s Experian credit report based on the “as of” date included with your score. This may differ from scores members have received else where that may have been calculated at a different time using information from a different credit bureau or even a different score model. If you have additional questions regarding the FICO® Score model and how it’s calculated, please refer to the FICO® Score FAQ and Understanding FICO® Scores.
