Credit history

This article deals with the general concept of the term credit history. For detailed information about the same topic in the United States, see Credit score in the United States.

A credit history is a record of a borrower's responsible repayment of debts. A credit report is a record of the borrower's credit history from a number of sources, including banks, credit card companies, collection agencies, and governments. A borrower's credit score is the result of a mathematical algorithm applied to a credit report and other sources of information to predict future delinquency.

As a college student trying to make my way in the world- I have hit a few bumps in the road that have lead me to a less than perfect credit score. These black marks are mostly due to medical debt that I was completely unaware I had accumulated. Anyone out there have some tips on how to be slowly fixing my credit?
