I'm sorry to hear you're extremely stressed at the moment. Uni can be so hard to manage when you have an immense amount of workload!

Have you thought about exploring mindfulness practice or find ways to manage your stress levels? Activities such as meditation, exercise, and journaling help a lot as you learn to focus on the task and distract your mind from the stress of uni.
As hard as it sounds, it's about finding things that work for you and allow you to juggle everything else in your life. Understandably uni work is a priority, so learning to work around that is something to work on if you're in a cloud of stress right now. Try to take a step back, write down a to-do list of about 5 things to concentrate on, and take things day by day.
Have you spoken to students in the years above you for advice on what they're doing? They may be able to offer some advice as you've been in your shoes!

I hope you find what works for you to manage uni

Don't you still have labs in the department and tutorials in college? Those are the main sources of learning at Oxford anyway, the lectures are usually just introductory on the topic (at any uni) and the independent reading is something you'd need to do at any uni by yourself (at home or in a library, and at least at home it's warmer and more comfortable!).
