I was very nervous about my 5th kyu test mostly because I was afraid of failing. I didn't fail and later I realized that my Senseis wouldn't even have let me test if they thought I couldn't do it. As for people who don't look like they should be allowed to pass their 5th kyu test, I was almost one of them. I did alright but great. I was able to get my sister to video tape it and I'm now able to look and actually see all of my mistakes (it made a big difference to see my flaws myself compared to the people telling me over and over again I realize, "oh my! I really AM bending over too far, etc...). Now that I see the weaknesses, I know what I need to work harder on. I think that's just 1 purpose for 5th kyu.
