Pycharm with 3.8 for tensorflow exam

Hi all, im preparing for my tensorflow developer exam. I have downloaded pycharm but it only works with python 3.10 (with 3.8 it fails to create virtual environment). The guide says 3.8 must be used, I am using windows. Has anyone encountered this issue and if so how was it resolved? Followed all suggestions on stack overflow, the only one that worked was to update to python 3.10

Hi, @John_Lodge

Please make sure you have PyCharm 2021.3 and Python 3.8.

By now I hope you have already found a solution and succeeded in the exam
