UC/CSU GPA Calculation Help?

So I'm having a little bit of trouble calculating my UC GPA (mostly because I'm an out of state student, and I'm confused which of my electives would be considered under A-G requirements). As far as I know, none of my honors courses will be weighted (so I wont bother listing them), but my AP courses will. (Does my senior year schedule weighted as well...?)

Sophomore Year:

World History: A
Algebra 2: A
Geometry: A
Art 1: A
Spanish 2: A
Medical Terminology (1 semester): A
Computer Science (Dropped after 1 semester): B
English 2: A
Chemistry: A

Junior Year:

Precal: B
AP Stats: B
AP Environmental Science: A
AP Psychology (1 Semester): A
Physics: A
English 3: A
US History: A
Health (1 semester): A
Speech (1 semester): A

Next Year:

AP Calculus BC
AP Physics C
AP Literature
AP Econ/Govt
Art 2 Ceramics
Agricultural Mechanics

So can anyone help me calculate my GPA? I'm just not sure which classes to include and which one not to. And if I did include all of my classes even though they didn't fall under the requirements, what would happen? Any help is appreciated! Thanks!

    You can look at the a-g course guide at http://doorways.ucop.edu -- it should include descriptions of what counts for each category. You can also look at the course listings for California high schools and see what categories similar courses are put in.
