Well 1000 RPMS is kind of high to go from idle, car in neutral to 1st gear. But I suppose it should work.
Some folks test the clutch for slipping (pressure plates worn out) by putting it in first, rev it up real high while in gear clutch out-car moving, then stomp on brakes with car still in gear reved high and now feel if the engine wants to over power the brakes. Or you can brake it with the trans to feel if it slips.
But if your cvlutch slave or master cylinder is worn out, the problem is the car is not clutching and that makes it hard to shift. Look for a real high pedal travel.
