Q: Why is my Experian credit score different to other scores?

A: Each Credit Reference Agency uses its own assessment criteria to generate your credit score, so each one is likely to show you a different number. It is not a reflection on which Agency has the most accurate data, more a reflection on how they interpret your information.

Q: How can I see information from Experian?

A: You can find credit file information from Experian, along with three other Credit Reference Agencies on your checkmyfile Multi-Agency credit report.
