RAC = Recent Average Credit.

RAC is a decaying average of the amount of work you've done over the course of about 5 weeks. Think of RAC like your speedometer on your car, it simply tells you how fast you're going but not how far you've gone.

Total Credit is more like the odometer on the car - how far you have gone.
