H, He, Li, and Be don't apply to the octet rule since they essentially only have access to the 1s subshell which will be stable with (and can only contain) two electrons. But other exceptions exist such as boron and aluminum that often don't follow the octet rule but Lavelle hasn't covered those yet so I'm afraid I can't give a more detailed answer.
