here is a proper answer :::
ITS A SCALAR .BUT IN CIRCUITS WE DEFINE THAT DIRECTION OF CURRENT IS DE DIRECTION OPP TO THE MOTION OF ELECTRONS.IT DOESNT MESN THAT ITS A VECTOR , IT REPRESENTS DE RATE OF FLOW OF CHARGES. WE KNOW THAT ELECTRIC CHARGE IS A SCALAR QUANTITY.ACCELERATION (RATE OF CHANGE OF VELOCITY )IS A VECTOR, BECAUSE VELOCITY IS A VECTOR.AND THE ANGULAR DISPLACEMENT THETA IS ALSO A SCALAR THOUGH IT HAS DIRECTION OF ANTICLOCKWISE
Current direction actually depends on the alignment of the conductor between two points having a potential difference... U place the conductor in a different way ... Current directions will change .. So current instrinsically does not have its own unique direction...hence can't called be a vector....
For being a vector u should have a well defined instrinsic direction.
