    it really depends what unis you are applying to but generally uni like you to have a few ECs that you are really really good at that 10 things you are average at.
    if you enjoy them all then keep them up but i do think if you are doing them all for uni admission then it is a bit un-nessasary

    D of E is pretty common but it obviously shows teamwork so keep it. I'm not sure if the EPQ will add that much considering your other EC's but if you can cope then you may as well keep that aswell.

    OP if you can cope and get the grades you need then there is no harm in any of it. but remember without your grades you will be in trouble
