I'm very alarmed by the fact that you have the outside the integral sign... correct version:

i can never tell when we can just ignore the minus root, in this case y has two values............ this makes me sad.

It would have made no difference had you taken the negative root - you'd get a negative area from which (I hope) you'd take the absolute value of to get the positive answer anyway. But at A-Level, you're nearly always going to be taking the positive root without any justification.

In either case - y is inside the integral!
