We know a molecule is paramagnetic if it has unpaired electrons.

Does the first electron to enter an orbital always have an upwards magnetic spin?

Due to convention, we designate the first half of elements in each orbital with the +1/2 spin and the latter half with negative spin, but I believe, as per mentioned on a recent test question, that both positive and negative spins are possible.
