It is not an issue of compatibility but access. EDU versions have serial numbers that expire yearly and IIRC if you skip one year then even if you are a student then you will not get access to that version and even if you do, since that version is more than a year old, then the serial for 23 would not be valid.
If you are a student there is no reason to be working in an older version. All my current students are using 25 at this time.
