Default 2nd gear

Hi, I've had my 2015 active (1.2 petrol) a few weeks now, and I find the manual gear change from 1st to 2nd quite clunky and it kinda skips and jerks the car when i let the clutch up. All other gears are good and even dropping down into 2nd is ok. The revs seem to drop a lot when changing 1st to 2nd. Is this normal? I had a 208 tech (2018) as a courtesy for 2 days with the 6 speed, and that was quite sloppy in all gears but had no issues with gear changing.
If I absolutely treat the gear change with respect and take 5 seconds to match the bite/throttle etc, its smooth, but a quickish change and it doesnt seem to like it.
