In the application for PMP exam, I am confused about which experience to put first. In the application, PMI tells to put the most recent experience first. But I have seen in a few online portals that it is better to put the largest project first.

I completed a project from 04/2017 to 09/2019 and then started another project in 10/2019 which is currently in progress.

Should I put the ongoing project description (most recent, 11 months duration) first? Or is it better to put description of the completed project first, which had 30 months duration?

I know this question seems redundant since PMI tells to put the most recent experience first. But I want to be clear. Please let me know. Thank you.

I would do what PMI advises you to do. Ultimately, it's unlikely to matter much, as the new application form works out your overlapping/experience hours and will tell you when you've put enough duration hours in.
