There are multiple reasons for a big score adjustment during a reporting period.  You will have to review the credit report, line by line to help determine what caused the change.   A credit card provider may have dropped your credit line, thus your utilization took a large increase as a result.  A single late payment.   If an account was closed during the period, you loose credit for that account.   Review your report line by line and I am certain you will be able to ascertain the cause.   One of the key indicators is by looking at the overview page for changes represented by the arrow showing an increase or decrease in an area.
