    My sister excels not only in English but also maths.

    My sister excels not only in English but also in maths.

    Is 'in' needed?

    Thanks.

    Re: My sister excels only only in English but also maths.

    I would keep it in there to avoid "my sister excels maths."
    Alternatively, you could write:
    My sister excels in not only English but also maths.
