Do UC's only look at 10th and 11th grade GPA?

I have a pretty good overall GPA but I'm not sure if mine is as stellar when looking specifically at 10th and 11th grade. And do the UC's recalculate GPA? I was a bit confused about that as well.

UC's only look at A-G courses taken in 10th and 11th grade. Therefore, they recalculate your GPA by only including A-G courses in 10th and 11th grade. Approved AP/Honors course work is ​weighted​ (given an extra point) for a maximum of 8 semesters.
