Why did my CreditScore raise so much?
Alright so I am new to Credit and made my account some time ago, but anyways I just have one secured credit card on my account, (I currently have it Maxed out) but! I am never late on payments, so that's all Excellent. I usually pay the minimum and by a habit of spending I usually respend it.

But this time I actually paid the majority off and is locking away my CC so I pay it off fully but when the Credit Score updated this is what I seen:

So is it currently maxed or mostly paid off?  Your wording is very confusing.  If you dropped your revolving utilization then that would be one possible reason for the scoring improvement.
