    Ionic bonding doesn't create molecules, it makes crystals

    Yes, it is only covalent bonding that produces molecules. It is ionic bonding that makes ions.

    The question should be how to atoms join to together to make compounds and even then ionic compounds aren't strictly made of atoms but ions. You can have ion molecules though obviously but that doesn't really come up much at gcse.

    OP himself said that the answer is covalent bonding. The question in the title specifically asks about molecules not just general compounds.
