    I agree, but I have a terrible suspicion that the exam boards are going to raise grade boundaries to reduce the proportion of As and A*s

    In a transistor, when there's a base current, does that send a current through both the emitter and the collector or does it just allow the current to flow from the collector to the emitter (one direction only)?

    Don't worry about that - they alter the grade boundaries so (approximately) the same percentage of people get A*s, the same percentage of people get As etc.

    It allows the current to flow through the C and the E, but I have a feeling the current from the B also flows out the E, because the current at the E = the current at the C + the current at the B.

    I think we're the victims of GCSE over-simplification again because they don't tell us what happens to the current at the B.
