First thing is that Credit Karma is NOT a credit bureau but a teaching site and the scores here are for use with the financial tools here.  Second, the calculation of credit score used by this site is the Vantage 3 method (and that is clearly stated here) and the bank may use a different method to calculate scores.  There is no ONE absolute credit score.  I suggest re-reading the articles here so you can better understand credit. I found the articles very beneficial. 3
