Event Goal Tracking and Events Section Values Don't Match Up

I checked out my PDF download event data for the past 7 days and cross-checked it with the goal value on my admin panel and the values are way different! On my events section it says I had 215 hits but when I checked goals, I only had 150. 

 

Any reason why this is happening? And how can I fix it?

Hi,

A goal is registered only once per a session so if a user downloads multiple PDFs in the same session only one goal completion will be recorded. Hope this explains what you're experiencing.
