Your credit approval may be improved or fast-tracked when you apply for new credit.
Save money on interest rates
Borrowers with higher credit scores will find it easier to secure the lower interest rates.
A holistic picture of your credit health
When you apply for a credit card, mortgage or car loan, lenders assess your creditworthiness based on your credit score and your credit report.
Experian i-SCORE is a consumer credit score that lenders use to evaluate your ability to repay a loan. Ranging from 300 to 800, the number is derived mathematically from the credit history in your credit report.
The higher the score, the more creditworthy you are, and the more likely you will secure a loan.

A credit score is a numeric representation of your credit worthiness in your credit report, based on available information on your credit files at the time of scoring. It will include highlights of key factors affecting your score, for your onwards improvement. The score helps lenders and credit grantors to predict how likely it is that you will repay a loan and make payments when they are due. Lenders or credit grantors may use credit scores in deciding whether to grant you credit, what terms and interest rate to offer you, and etc.
Information used to calculate your credit score may include:
- The number and type of accounts you have (credit cards, housing loans, car loans, personal loans, etc.);
- Whether you pay your loans on time;
- How much of your available credit you are currently using;
- The amount of your outstanding debt;
- Whether you have been actively applying for new credits;
- Whether you have any legal actions against you;
- The age of your accounts
Because your credit score reflects the information in your credit report, changes to your credit report may cause your credit score to change. One of the most important things you can do to improve your credit score is pay your loans by the due date. You can set up automatic payments from your bank account to help you pay on time, but be sure you have enough money in your account to avoid overdraft fees. Pay down your outstanding balance on a credit card or mortgage loan, correct an error in your credit report will help to increase your credit score.
