# Molecular orbitals and “generalized” aufbau principle for heteronuclear molecular configurations

Is there any general ordering or rule for heteronuclear molecules like $\ce{AX_2}$, $\ce{AX_{n}}$, and their molecular bonding/antibonding configurations ($\sigma/\pi$ orbitals) accordingly to some order in the Molecular Orbital Theory (MOT)?

Do the molecular orbital configurations and their order depend on the scheme and the linear combination of atoms (homo and heteronuclear, di and polyatomic) or is there some "standard ordering" like the aufbau principle $\ce{1s~2s~2p~3s~3p~4s~3d~4p~5s~\dots}$ for atomic orbitals in atoms? Or are molecular configurations a totally dependent on the molecule type and geometry? That is, I want to know if there is some (general) rule for molecular orbitals (ordering and energies) just like the aufbau principle for atomic orbitals.
