There is an exception to electron configurations in which if there are 4 or 9 electrons in the d orbital, then instead of having 2 electrons in the following s orbital, you add an electron to the d orbital to make it 5 or 10 electrons. This is because a half filled or complete d orbital has a lower energy state than a d-orbital with 4 or 9 electrons respectively.
