You have a variety of subjects so I think you'll be absolutely fine. I know it can be tricky when you have pressure from your family, but really try to focus on what you want and the job you want to do. It is your life and therefore your happiness. As morbid as it is, one day your family will likely die before you. If you do a job they want you to do, then you'll be left living a miserable life in a job you potentially resent because of them. It isn't their life to control. If you enjoy a more non-academic subject compared to a super academic one then pursue that. Happiness is more important than money. You can't buy happiness.

You don't need to get an academic job just because everyone else in your family does.. and as for your options, they really don't matter too much. They seem like a good range of subjects and from those you could probably do most things. In regards to your dyslexia, my elder sister too is dyslexic. She managed to get the 5 C's she needed to enrol onto a vocational course in hospitality and catering, has done very well in competitions (she even had the chance to compete at an international level!!) and now is beginning to set up her own business and already has a few customers. Basically, what I'm trying to say is that academics isn't for everyone, and it's not the only way to get a good job. Look at how rich Richard Branson is- and he's dyslexic! As long as you have interests, follow them and you never know where they could take you.
