An agent requested an exclusive for 4 weeks on a partial. I had other material out and so wasn't able to grant the exclusive but assured the agent that I would keep the agent informed if I had offers etc. I understand that exclusives will be prioritized. My question is what is a likely time frame to hear back? Has this happened to anyone else? I'm now at 10 weeks.

Have you nudged this agent? Personally I think you've waited way too long. Either email her/or him and request an update on the exclusive status. If you don't hear back, I would write them off as a "no" and continue to query.

It's not an exclusive, so the exclusive timeline doesn't apply, neither does the priority status that comes with being an exclusive. Wait 3 months, or until you have something to tell him, like you've gotten an offer elsewhere. You're at ten weeks, so give it another two.
