    A credit score has multiple ranges and scoring models. The most common range used by FICO® and VantageScore® is between 300-850. These are the two most well-known scoring models used by the three major credit reporting agencies – Equifax®, Experian®, and TransUnion®. Both calculate credit scores within a range of 300-850, but their criteria of categorization and the importance of each factor vary slightly.

    A good FICO score lies within the range of 670-739. Those with a good credit score are generally considered low-risk borrowers by most lenders. The chances of people with a good score getting approved for a loan or credit card at low premiums, interest rates, and higher credit limits are higher.

    At the same time, a good credit score does not guarantee a loan or credit card because some lenders may consider factors, such as income, to determine your creditworthiness, which is not part of your credit score.
