What is a Credit Score?

A credit score is a guide that can help you understand how your history of managing credit (i.e. loans, overdrafts and mobile phone contracts) in the past is likely to be viewed by a lender if you make a credit application in the future. You do not have just one credit score as each lender will look at your credit history in slightly different ways.
