Why do credit scores vary from one bureau to another?

The credit score is calculated using several statistical models by various credit bureaus. There are three reasons behind variation in your credit score from different credit bureaus.

  • Each reporting agency utilizes a different set of credit scoring algorithms
  • Lenders don't share information with all credit bureaus resulting in discrepancies, though, legally, they are required to do so every month in the same format
  • Date of checking your credit report may differ and it might contain corrections or addition of updated data
