no there are various factors deciding wether the molecule is covalent or ionic
1. If the electronegativity difference (usually called ΔEN) is less than 0.5, then the bond is nonpolar covalent.
2. If the ΔEN is between 0.5 and 1.6, the bond is considered polar covalent
3. If the ΔEN is greater than 2.0, then the bond is ionic.
