- Percent of On-Time Payments (high weight)
I was given an A on this one, but I know I have a 90-day late payment in 2008 from a closed credit card (aka CC2), and that's the only existing ding to my credit I am aware of. For whatever reason, it's giving me an A, and I'll take it, thank you very much (yeah, I know this isnt the actual credit score). It further says I have made a total of 154 payments, and all 154 payments have been on time. No idea what sort of payments they're talking about specifically (loans? closed credit cards?).
- Hard Credit Inquiries (low weight)
Again, not sure why I get an A. Says this accounts for all hard inquiries within the past 2 years. However, I did make a hard inquiry to get my Chase credit card in Feb 2012. I guess that puts me on the B range instead of A range.
- Derogatory Marks (high weight)
Here's something interesting: as I mentioned, I do have a derogatory mark from 2008. But this only counts public records and open accounts in collections. Since that credit card (CC2) is closed and being repaid on schedule, it doesn't show up. Or so I can hope, right? Perhaps this is another mistake and I should be on the B (or C or D, since it was a 90-day (three 30-day periods)).
Ah, well. It's nice to know what you're getting graded on for the most part, and it tempts me oh so much to see what my TransUnion credit score actually is. I'd be thrilled if it is as high as they estimate, at 761!
