There ended up being fifteen people in the class.

There ended up with fifteen people in the class.

Are both sentences correct?

Thanks.

The first sentence is passable, but the second one is far more awkward and ungrammatical.

My suggestions:

Fifteen people ended up enrolled in the class.
Fifteen people ended up in the class.
The class ended up with fifteen students enrolled.
Fifteen people showed up for the first meeting of class, despite the shortage of seats.
They ended up with fifteen people in the class.
