Experian Highes FICO Score???

Hello all, I just checked all of my 3 fico scores with eq, ex, and tu and ex is showing to be the highest:
 
TU - 544
EQ - 558
EX - 627
 
Now I thought TU was normally the highest and EX was the lowest.  Am i wrong?  What is the norm in terms of who is the highest, lowest and middle? 
 
I reviewed my credit reports with all three and EX is basically showing the same stuff as EQ and TU but actually reporting one late payment for August for a CO that EQ is not showing as a late payment.
 
Please help me understand.  I am in credit repair mode and so am trying to learn all about this stuff...so your help is greatly appreciated.

Re: Experian Highes FICO Score???

The answer is, your mileage may vary.

Scores seem to vary randomly in terms of which agency is highest and lowest...for some, EQ is their friend, whereas for me it seems they view my credit life through crap-colored glasses.

I have a suspicion EQ's model has a little more inertia, making it slower to recover if your credit is on the mend. However, I haven't seen enough samples of credit reportsd, situations, and scores to assert that as fact.

Re: Experian Highes FICO Score???

TU has always been the lowest for me. EQ and EX have been my two highest; currently EX as my highest.

I find that the EQ score is more susceptible to change with inquiries/new accounts, whereas the EX is more resilient. Though I'm sure this differs from person to person.

Starting Score: EQ 773, TU 766
Current Score: EX 794, EQ 787, TU 776
Goal Score: 800

I agree that EQ does not like new accounts especially with folks who have very high scores, over 750. I noticed EX punishes folks with new inqs.

EX just punishes me - and I only have one inq with them!
