have any idea what is the difference between both of them?


A symbol is a complex signal representing 1 or more bits (generally). A symbol is represented by a number of samples, which can be 1 or more samples per symbol. If you're symbol represents 1 bit (like in BPSK), you have 1 bit per symbol, but you might have more samples per symbol to represent that symbol.
