A stereocenter in organic chemistry is a carbon with four different atoms or groups of atoms attached to it.

Do we need to know this for the final?

if it is on the final, is it used as a concept question or something more than that?

I am not sure but if it is on the final I doubt it'd be very important. As long as you remember that basic definition

Is it only a stereocenter if all the atoms are different, or can 2 or more atoms be the same?
