@NRBW not sure what you mean. if you take the certificate and individual courses, then yes, you will not obtain the 'full' diploma. whether this is 'worse' depends on what your goals and aims are. i know a lot of american students enjoy doing courses to gain college credits, however they don't want to put up with TOK and the EE stuff that the full diploma entails, so they pursue IB certificates.
