Why conclude you aren't qualified on your own? If you think you aren't
qualified, then you are hardly qualified to judge whether you are

Just go for the practice, and to find out about the job. Interviews
where I was obviously *not* qualified for the position in question
taught me far more than others where I was a lock. Go with the attitude
you have no chance, and as such use it as an opportunity to find out as
much as possible about the organization, the working conditions, the
previous job-holder, who hires whom there, pay scales, and so forth.

And how do you know, maybe you *are* qualified! Got to break some eggs
to make an omelet! Good luck..
