I the world of credit, your credit rating is represented by a score. Eight hundred is the highest score or rating available. Many different things contribute to ones score, and I do not fully understand them myself. A score of five hundred fifty is, I believe slightly below average. Which translates to higher down payments and higher intrest rates on any financed purchase or money loan.
