Difference between Experiments report and Dashboard

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hi there,
 
I launched a test 1 week ago and I have differences in number of sessions & conversions between the Behavior > Experiments report & my custom Dashboard.
 
For my dashboard I'm using de dimension "variation" and "sessions" as metrics.
I'm doing the same thing for my conversions (event).
 
Since it's impossible to use the metric "experiment sessions" in custom report (and the definition helper is very ... short), I can't do much to find what's wrong ...
 
There's a thread about experiment sessions definition but for a mysterious reason I'm redirect to the Home page ... https://productforums.google.com/forum/#!topic/analytics/8GfP0ZFfvdA
 
Does anyone know why there's such a difference between those 2 reports and which metrics and reports I should trust ? 
 
Thanks
