Hello World, I have started the course CS50 as Honor Code. I would like to know what Advantage can I get if I opt. for Verified Certificate. I belong to a economically weak family, so I want to be sure if there really better anything in a certificate that costs $90 (nearly ₹6000). Please help!

An honor code certificate basically means that you verify yourself that you took the course. It is than up to the person reading your certificate to decide whether you did indeed complete the course or not. A verified certificate basically says that Edx verified that you took the course. They will ask for your camera to take a photo of you and compare it with your ID. The verified certificate essentially has more credibility than an honor code certificate. In your situation, it may be better to opt for the honor code certificate.
