What do these ratings mean?

Credit Ratings

If you know much about your credit score or history you will more than likely know which of the following categories you fit into. Lenders tend to view the 5 categories as mentioned:


This is a category of very low risk customers. The vast majority of them will have little to no issue with repaying credit. High levels of credit in the past and currently with no issues repaying them would be likely to give customers in this group an excellent credit rating as well as being on the electoral roll.


A Good credit rating gives lenders little reason to believe you would be a risk to lend to. Customers within this category are likely to have settled finance agreements as well as some current agreements which are running without missed payments.


A small proportion of people in this group may have missed payments or will have little traceable past history of borrowing. If you’re young, not on the electoral roll or have few past credit accounts you are likely to be in the category.


This group would suggest you have issues repaying credit or the vast majority of people in this group have defaulted or missed payments in the past.


A bad credit score means that you will likely pay a high rate but can still get approved for a loan. Lenders would view this kind of credit rating as high risk but may consider lending to them on a certain tier of interest.
