Hi! I'm not sure whether I have caught the point or not. Help me! Thanks!

The bar chart shows the difference in the percentage of international and UK students who gained second class degrees or better at a main Britain university in 2009. Majors compared in the graph consisted of nursing, elecrtical engineering, information techonoogy, English literature, art history, accountancy, international law and sociology.

There were three main features according to this chart. First of all. majors that international students performed as well as the local students. They were nursing and accountancy. The second feature was that the majors of which the percentage of international students exceeded that of UK students, namely, English literature, art history, international law and sociology. The last feature, apparently, was the majors whose percentage of local students surpassed the international students'. These majors included electrical engineering and information technology.

As we can see from the graph, most international students did better in the science and engineering subjects but worse in arts than UK students.

First of all, majors that international students have performed as well as the local students.They were nursing and accountancy.

... it's a comma and not a full stop. Also this sentence is not written properly to give clear details to the reader;
The majors that both international and local students had equally performed well were the courses of nursing and accountancy.
