In addition to what others have said I also recommend taking into consideration Hund's Rule and the electron configuration exceptions Lavelle mentioned (Cr and Cu) whenever asked anything about electron spin even if you may not know the specific spin of an electron in an orbital.
As of yet, we haven't needed to know how to determine the spin of a specific electron. We do know that in the configuration, electrons should be organized with parallel spins first though and then have the electrons of opposing spins added afterwards.
