Bonus activity: Find your credit score.

 

Remember how you used to get grades at the end of every term? And the better your grades, the more chance you had of scoring a gift from your folks?

Well, that’s kind of what a credit score is.

It’s a number based on your credit history that lenders and banks take into account before deciding whether to lend you money.

Higher score = more creditworthy.

So, how’s it worked out?

  • Your age
  • Your loans
  • The number of applications you’ve made
  • The type of credit accounts you’ve held
  • Your usual repayment amount/s
  • Whether you repay on time
  • If you’ve had a bankruptcy/personal insolvency agreement.

Now here’s the good news. Your credit score is dynamic. If you become a model citizen and make your bills and loan repayments on time, it will skyrocket into the good range and the lenders will come running.
