Not understanding why my credit is so low when I have A's in the HIGH impact categories?
I have A's in all the HIGH impact areas but my credit score dropped to 579? This doesn't make any sense. Can someone please explain?

Hi Modeh,

The credit score is calculated by the credit bureau that maintains your credit report, TransUnion. The Credit Report Card grades are an educational tool designed to show you what areas are important to your credit score - it is possible to have a great credit score and poor Credit Report Card grades, or vice versa. The Credit Report Card is a comparison metric that shows general trends, but will not always align with your actual credit score, depending on your personal credit history.
