It varies.

The school I went to did one after the other.

The school I teach at now does them combined with 6 hours a week teaching time for each. This is mainly due to options, and also has made it easier for students who are struggling to drop down to just normal maths - apparently the department found that when they ran 1 year Maths and 1 year Further Maths that students who dropped down from Further halfway through Year 12 were actually severely behind because they'd learned everything so fast and not absorbed any of it.

At our school we did them both from the start . I thought it was a good system, altho I think there was a fair share of planning and back n forth between teachers to make it work. Still, it was surprising how much stuff in Further Maths didn't really rely on anything we did in Maths - even complicated stuff like Matrices.

They're two different courses run by the same exam board

I did both maths and further maths in Y12 (and will do for Y13 too)

My college did all of alevel maths in Y12 and then Further in Y13

At the end of Y12 my college lets you chose to do either a full alevel in further or just an AS

We do them both at the same time - it works most of the time, apart from when we finished the Further Year 1 content too early and then started Further Stats before we'd done any of regular Stats

It depends on the timetabling at the school i guess. Some schools chose to teach math and FM in parallel in the first and second year, some choose to do all of a level math in year 12 and FM in year 13...

As people have said, it varies. Some universities (particularly but not exclusively for Medicine) make offers based on 3 A levels taken at the same time, meaning that students who have then Maths in Y12 and then FM in Y13 are required to get the same grade in FM that a student taking only 3 A levels (i.e. not the FM) would have had to get in Maths

Mine did it subsequently. I think that's the better option. We didn't take A-level maths early though.
