Last year, I tried to work so hard with my repertoire, I got a new teacher, I had to change in the last months my program because they increased it.

Yesterday was the exam, I did my best and tried to control my nerves, I made mistakes, but in the end I played it all.

In the end, I got a 7 (an equivalent to a C), I passed but I don't feel good about it, specially because two got 9 (an A) and one an 8 (a B).

Is it normal to feel bad about it?, should I not be worry about it and let it go or should I need to take some action and desicions like changing teacher again or take extra piano courses outside of school?

You have nothing to worry about.  I wouldn't change teachers again.  Congratulations on passing!  Keep working hard.   :)

Sounds fine to me:  you adapted to new conditions and passed. 

It's just an exam. 

What matters is you passed, and now you can go do more exams and keep learning more. 

Results aren't the same as some random, probably over-tired, perhaps senile people assigning grades:  results actually matter, and according to everyone involved, you got the stuff to continue.

Thank you all for your words of encouragment. Right now I have learnt new material and getting prepared for a recital which will be in October. I am going to post my advances around these days so I can improve.
