Your score is calculated by TransUnion. No one on this forum has specific knowledge of your credit report to provide an answer as to why your score changed by 1 point. I suggest checking your Credit Report Card for recent changes.

It comes down to Time,   Length of Time, 

You did get older between between the 2 Credit Score Checks.  So that was a change.

You Payment history got older.  So there was another Change.

The age of your accounts got older. So there was another Change.  ( Count that for each account you have. )

Time is just another factor that goes into each of your Credit Scores.

Folks might not like it,  but it is a fact.

Hope that helps.
