How bad is a credit score of 566?
Pretty bad!! Anything below a 680 is pretty bad. You will find it quite hard to get financing with a score that low.
No, it's still "bad" not very bad- but "bad" It used to be an okay score; before the FICO 08 score changes.....Fico is the real credit score...not the other you pull from the credit bureaus. Those are estimated scores.MyFICO.com is the official score sight- which can resolve any other questions you may have.
The best way for people with bad credit to get credit is to rebuild their credit score, this can be done by clearing off past due bills and bad debts, how ever responsible users can avail of department store credit cards or some credit card companies will offer people with bad credit score history a special credit card.
If you are talking about credit score, understand that I am not a credit expert, but since a credit score of 620 is bad, 215 would be a terrible credit score. If this is for a test like the SAT, this is also horrible. The average score of the SAT is about 500, and even that isn't that good of a score.
