Just stop ,sit down and organise a clear cut schedule. Talk to a friend about how you are feeling and if worst case scenario occurs drop EPQ.

I'm not gonna lie you do have a big workload. As I'm sure you are aware you don't need to do 4 A levels and as a result I would only continue to do 4 if you are sure you enjoy them. If there is one you don't like you are likely going to have to spend more time on this subject and it will jepodise your other subjects. If you enjoy them then by all means continue them if you wish.
If I were you I would definitely drop the EPQ as, no offence, it's not really worth much but takes up a huge amount of your time and it's better to focus on your A levels.
